    Thomas William Randolph - Nevada Death Row


    Thomas Randolph arrested in 1989 for murder of first wife, and 2009 arrest for murder of second wife.




    Double slaying trial for Utah man delayed in Vegas

    A death penalty trial has been delayed in Las Vegas for a Utah man accused of paying a handyman to kill his sixth wife and then killing the hit man.

    The indefinite postponement of Thomas William Randolph's trial came last week, after the 56-year-old appealed a Clark County District Court judge's refusal to let him switch lawyers a week before trial was scheduled to start.

    A three-judge Nevada Supreme Court panel ordered Judge Stefany Miley to cancel trial until after prosecutors and defense attorneys submit written arguments and the state high court has time to consider them.

    Randolph was indicted in January 2009 on conspiracy and murder charges in the slayings of 57-year-old Sharon Clausse Randolph and her killer, 38-year-old Michael James Miller.

    Man accused of killing wife, hitman headed to trial


    LAS VEGAS (KSNV News3LV) — A Clark County District Court judge found Thomas Randolph, 61, mentally fit to stand trial in the death of his wife and another man.

    The case stems back to 2008 when Sharon Causse and Michael James Miller were killed.

    Video evidence already shown in court showed Randolph walking detectives through his home, detailing what happened the night of the shooting.

    The couple had dinner then Randolph claims he shot an intruder who shot and killed his wife. Randolph describes walking into his home and seeing his wife dead on the ground.

    "And about right here. I was trying to kind of get a view I thought I kind of just seen a shadow or something over this way," Randolph said in the video.

    That shadow was of 38-year-old Michael James Miller. A friend of Randolph's, detectives believes he hired to kill his wife to collect life insurance payouts.

    In the video, Randolph tells detectives he grabbed a gun and ran into the masked intruder.

    "That's when I just pushed him, boom, boom. He started going out. He started going out the shed. I don't know how many times I shot him but I just kept going. Boom, boom, boom and he's just lying there," Randolph said in the video.

    That's Randolph's version of the events, prosecutors believe he plotted to have his wife killed with Miller and then turned the gun on his accomplice and the only witness.

    This isn't the first time he's been charged with murder, in 1988 Randolph was acquitted of killing another wife.

    He's been married six times and four of his wives are now dead.

    Fast forward to Friday, Randolph was found mentally competent to stand trial after his attorneys argued he needed to be examined by doctors.

    "I'm concerned we're going to be back here before too long," said Clark Patrick, Randolph's attorney.

    Patrick told the court a recent change in medications may alter Randolph's mental state.

    "They changed his medication rendering him, incompetent due to the withdrawal from the opioids," Patrick said.

    Another possible delay in a case that's been awaiting trial for seven years.

    Randolph will return to court on June 1st.

    Trial set for next week in 9-year-old murder case

    By David Ferrara
    Las Vegas Review-Journal

    Thomas Randolph had six wives. Four are dead.

    On Monday, lawyers are scheduled to start picking jurors for a trial on charges that Randolph hired a hitman to kill his last wife and then killed the hitman. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.

    But first, the 62-year-old needs to see a barber.

    Randolph’s gray-white hair, which he wore in pigtails for a brief court proceeding Wednesday, has grown well past his shoulders. His lawyers, special public defenders Randall Pike and Clark Patrick, want him well-groomed for the jury.

    When the murder trial starts next week, he is expected to have short hair again, like he did when he was arrested in January 2009 in connection with the May 2008 killings. Randolph’s is the oldest murder case yet to see a trial in Clark County, but that’s mainly a result of his own doing.

    He has fired several attorneys through the years, including Yale Galanter, known for representing O.J. Simpson. Randolph retained Galanter for three years before firing him and receiving two Clark County public defenders, whom he also fired.

    Prosecutors have said that Randolph wanted his wife, Sharon Clausse Randolph, whom he married in 2006, dead to collect more than $400,000 in insurance, a similar motive alleged in the death of one of his previous wives.

    About two decades before the deaths of Sharon Randolph and Michael James Miller, a jury acquitted Thomas Randolph of murder in the death of his previous wife, Becky Randolph. She was found dead from a single gunshot wound to the head, and Randolph collected $250,000 in insurance payouts after her death, according to news reports at the time.

    District Judge Stefany Miley recently ruled that jurors can hear about those allegations but only when referred to as “the Utah case.” His defense attorney at the time said Randolph’s wife committed suicide, had suffered from a cocaine addiction and had previously attempted suicide.

    Prosecutors at the time said Randolph and a friend, Eric Tarantino, plotted to kill Becky Randolph and make it look like an accident. Randolph pleaded guilty to tampering with a witness for conspiring with a fellow inmate to kill Tarantino, who was the prosecution’s prime witness against him.

    Randolph met 38-year-old Miller in front of a convenience store about a year before the killings. The two struck up a relationship, and Randolph hired Miller as a handyman to work on his northwest valley home at 6517 Rancho Sante Fe Drive.

    Two of Randolph’s other wives died of illness.

    Should a jury convict Randolph of first-degree murder, Randolph’s first and fourth wives are expected to testify during a penalty phase that he threatened to kill them.

    Thomas Randolph trial

    Thomas Randolph said an intruder killed his wife, and then he shot the intruder. But authorities didn’t buy his story.

    November 1986 — Becky Randolph dies in Utah of gunshot wound to the head.

    April 1989 — Jury acquits Thomas Randolph of his wife’s murder.

    May 2008 — Sharon Clausse Randolph and Michael James Miller are killed inside Randolph’s northwest valley home.

    January 2009 — Police arrest Randolph on suspicion that he killed Miller after hiring him to murder his wife.

    Man on trial for 2008 double murder sang song about killing wife

    By David Ferrara
    Las Vegas Review-Journal

    In the late 1980s, Thomas Randolph would walk around singing the lyrics to “Foolish Behaviour” by Rod Stewart, a former friend testified Friday during the Las Vegas man’s double murder trial.

    “Or should I act quite cold and deliberate,” the lyrics go. “Or maybe blow out her brains with a bullet?/They’ll think suicide, they won’t know who done it/I’m gonna kill my wife, I’m really gonna take her life.”

    Prosecutors launched the evidence portion of Randolph’s trial on charges that he hired a hitman to kill his wife in 2008 before fatally shooting the hitman by telling jurors about the 1986 death of Randolph’s second wife, Becky Gault.

    Chief Deputy District Attorney Jacqueline Bluth pointed to similarities in Gault’s death and the killings of Randolph’s sixth wife, Sharon Clausse, and Michael James Miller, a man authorities said Randolph groomed to kill Clausse. He is facing the death penalty.

    Gault’s body was found tucked in her waterbed inside the couple’s Clearfield, Utah, home with a bullet to the right side of her head, and a coroner ruled that she died by suicide. But prosecutors thought the positioning of the gun in her right hand was unusual for a self-inflicted gunshot, and Randolph stood to gain more than $530,000 from the death, so they tried him for murder.

    Randolph ultimately was acquitted, but he pleaded guilty to tampering with a witness for offering an undercover cop a car title and cash to kill Eric Tarantino, the star witness in the Utah case.

    Tarantino told authorities about a year after Gault’s death that Randolph had asked him to kill her. After Tarantino refused, he warned Gault and fled town.

    Defense attorneys said Randolph was angry because he knew Tarantino had slept with Gault.

    The lyrics to the tune Randolph would hum end with the words: “It was all a very nasty dream.”

    But prosecutors said Randolph had the same motive to kill in 2008. He would receive upward of $360,000 after Clausse’s death. A week before she died, Randolph received a letter responding to an inquiry he made about his wife’s life insurance policy.

    Bluth pointed to “two stories of two men 20 years apart who never even met each other, yet their stories are the exact same … Their friendship and their job was to kill two women, the wives of Thomas Randolph. And the only reason Mike Miller is dead is because Eric Tarantino lived to tell the story, and Thomas Randolph was not going to make that mistake again.”

    Deputy Special Public Defender Randall Pike told jurors that Randolph knew nothing of Miller’s home invasion or plan to kill Clausse. Randolph’s marriage was steady, money wasn’t a problem and the couple talked of buying property in Utah, while fixing up their northwest Las Vegas home before the killings. Randolph married Clausse in 2006, and the couple renewed their vows a year later.

    “Things were going good, but they weren’t going good for Mr. Miller,” Pike said. “They had started moving toward the marriage they hoped this was going to be.”

    A man who finds wife shot dead has a “right, an obligation” to make sure the threat is gone, Pike said.

    Prosecutors plan to tell jurors two of Randolph’s other wives are dead from apparent illness. Should he be convicted of first-degree murder in the 2008 killings, his two living ex-wives are expected to testify at a penalty phase that he threatened to kill them.

    Thomas Randolph trial

    Thomas Randolph said an intruder killed his sixth wife, and then he shot the intruder. But authorities didn’t buy his story, partly because of similarities with the death of one of his previous wives.

    Randolph was acquitted of a 1986 murder charge, but pleaded guilty to tampering with a witness for conspiring with a cellmate to kill the prosecution’s star witness. That man told jurors on Friday that when Randolph asked him to kill, “I came right out and said no.”

    Jury begins deliberating in double murder trial of Thomas Randolph

    By David Ferrara
    Las Vegas Review-Journal

    Michael James Miller wasn’t wearing a black ski mask when he was executed after killing Thomas Randolph’s sixth wife, Sharon Causse, inside the couple’s home, prosecutors said Monday in Randolph’s double murder trial.

    He wore a black baseball cap, one he wore regularly around those he knew.

    Randolph told police that he noticed a man in a dark mask after finding his wife shot in the head in an entrance hallway of their northwest valley home in May 2008.

    But prosecutors Jacqueline Bluth and David Stanton poked holes in that statement during closing arguments.

    A plastic tag remained on the inside of the mask, near the space for a nose, Bluth told jurors. There was little DNA evidence on the mask. No blood, no bullet holes and no hair, even though Miller was shot in the head, Stanton said.

    The prosecutor said Miller’s hat likely fell off after he was shot while slumped over in Randolph’s garage, and Randolph tossed the ski mask next to Miller’s body.”

    “Miller’s a tool,” Stanton argued. That’s all he is — a means to an end. A man who doesn’t have the guts to pull the trigger himself, he has somebody else do it for him.”

    Randolph was arrested in January 2009, and it took more than eight years for the case to go to trial. Jurors are expected to resume deliberations Tuesday morning.

    Randolph is facing the death penalty if convicted of first-degree murder. Prosecutors say Randolph was motivated by greed, and stood to gain upward of $360,000 in insurance money from Causse’s death. That was less than the roughly $500,000 in insurance money he collected after the 1986 death of his second wife, Becky Gault.

    Bluth pointed to similarities in Gault’s death and the 2008 killings, but Deputy Special Public Defender Clark Patrick called Gault’s death a “red herring.”

    Gault’s body was found tucked in her waterbed inside the couple’s Clearfield, Utah, home with a bullet to the right side of her head, and a coroner ruled that she died by suicide. Randolph ultimately was acquitted after being tried for murder, but he pleaded guilty to tampering with a witness for offering an undercover cop a car title and cash to kill Eric Tarantino, the star witness in the Utah case.

    Tarantino told authorities about a year after Gault’s death that Randolph had asked him to kill her. But Tarantino refused; he warned Gault and fled town.

    Randolph’s last marriage was steady, money wasn’t a problem and the couple talked of buying property in Utah, while fixing up their northwest Las Vegas home before the killings, his attorney said. Randolph married Causse in 2006, and the couple renewed their vows a year later.

    Patrick told jurors that Randolph was assaulted by a man who had just killed his wife “and had every right to defend his home.”

    Should he be convicted of first-degree murder in the 2008 killings, his two living ex-wives are expected to testify at a penalty phase that he threatened to kill them.

    Double murderer with 6 wives not a sociopath, doctor says

    By David Ferrara
    Las Vegas Review-Journal

    Convicted double murderer Thomas Randolph, who lived for decades off the proceeds of dead wives, has a narcissitic personality but is not a sociopath, a psychiatrist testified Thursday about the flagrant philanderer six times wed.

    “A person with narcissistic traits is at the center of the world,” Norton Roitman told jurors. “When the camera’s on them, they become an actor. When they get attention, their personality shines through. They can be disloyal because they seek adulation and in marriages sometimes when he doesn’t get what he wants from that person, he goes and gets it from somebody else.”

    The 62-year-old is facing the death penalty for ordering his sixth wife, Sharon Causse, dead and killing the hit man, Michael James Miller, in May 2008.

    A day earlier, a jury convicted Randolph of two counts of first-degree murder with the use of a deadly weapon and one count of conspiracy to commit murder. The same panel of eight women and four men is tasked with deciding his punishment.

    In a series of videotaped interviews played at trial, including one re-enactment of the killings, Randolph had told police that he noticed a man in a black ski mask after finding his wife shot in the head in an entrance hallway of their home in May 2008.

    Roitman told Chief Deputy District Attorney David Stanton that Randolph, who was not arrested until eight months after his sixth wife suffered a gunshot wound to the head, became secluded and grief-stricken after her death. He grieved for another late wife, too, but Roitman could not recall her name.

    “What he’s doing late at night when he’s by himself in bed is much different than what he is doing when he’s talking to people, juicing them up with outrageous language and terms, provoking reactions and living off of their emotions,” Roitman said.

    Stanton asked if he knew that Randolph had mistresses throughout four of his marriages.

    “I wouldn’t doubt that,” the psychiatrist said.

    Prosecutors have said Randolph’s story about a home invasion turned deadly did not make sense, and they pointed to similarities between the two killings and the 1986 death of his second wife in Utah, among four who are dead.

    Rachel Gaskins, the daughter of another wife, Francis, told jurors that Randolph prevented her from visiting her mother the day she died in a hospital recovery room after heart surgery. He was the last to see Francis alive in April 2004, had her body cremated within 24 hours of her death, and did not let her daughter attend the funeral.

    Randolph collected a windfall from a life insurance policy and a lawsuit settlement with the Utah hospital.

    Randolph was arrested in the double homicide in January 2009, and it took more than eight years for the case to go to trial.

    Prosecutors say Randolph was motivated by greed and stood to gain upward of $360,000 in insurance money from Causse’s death. That was less than the roughly $500,000 in insurance money he collected after the 1986 death of Becky Gault.

    Randolph was acquitted after being tried for murder in Gault’s death. His lawyers convinced a jury that she died by suicide. But he pleaded guilty to tampering with a witness for offering an undercover officer a car title and cash to kill the star witness in the case.

    Randolph trial


    Thomas Randolph’s defense attorney Clark Patrick asked psychiatrist Norton Roitman about the convicted double murderer’s personality traits on Thursday, as jurors hear evidence during the penalty phase of trial.

    In explaining that Randolph had a narcissistic personality, Roitman compared Randolph’s videotaped interviews with police to his encounters with the defendant.

    “He entered a chapter of being examined by police, and he acted the role that he wanted to act in that situation,” Roitman said.

    Patrick asked: “And do you believe in the 11 hours you spent with Tom was enough to get past that and into the real Tommy?

    Roitman replied: “I think I scratched the surface a few times. I touched a couple of nerves. I think I saw some real tears, some authenticity.”

    Man facing death penalty wears Tony Romo jersey at Las Vegas courthouse

    Thomas Randolph walked into a Las Vegas courtroom on Friday wearing a Dallas Cowboys jersey. He walked out with a jury deciding whether he should die.

    Chief Deputy District Attorney David Stanton told jurors that wearing the XXXL No. 9 Tony Romo blue and white jersey with blue jeans and white gym shoes showed that Randolph had no remorse for the deaths of his sixth wife, Sharon Causse or the man he hired to kill her, Michael James Miller.

    Earlier this week, jurors convicted Randolph of two counts of first-degree murder with use of a deadly weapon and one count of conspiracy to commit murder.

    “He doesn’t care about that at all. It doesn’t bother him a bit,” the prosecutor said. “Any rational compassionate human being would be appalled at themselves.”

    Several people testified at trial that they still fear the 62-year-old convicted killer, who defense attorneys said would die in prison no matter his sentence.

    Randolph said he wanted to wear the jersey, rather than a traditional shirt and tie, on his last day of trial because he would speak to jurors. He has been locked up since January 2009, wearing only jail clothing.

    “Since I’ve been 12, I’ve been a Cowboys fan,” he told reporters in the holding cell. “It gives me comfort, even in here.”

    He rose to address the panel of eight women and four men, adjusting his hearing aid headphones, referencing three of his four dead wives, and saying the thought of serving his time among the general population of a prison frightens him.

    “I’ve lived a helluva good life,” he said. “I’ve been blessed … I’m sorry that all this happened. … We’ll do one appeal, and if it doesn’t work, give me that shot, and I’ll go meet Sharon and Becky and Francis.”

    Jurors can decide one of four sentences: a term of 20 to 50 years behind bars, 20 years to life in prison, life in prison without the possibility of parole, or death. The decision must be unanimous. They deliberated for about an hour, and are expected to return at 9 a.m. Wednesday.

    In asking jurors to spare Randolph’s life, one of his lawyers said they could consider the simple fact that he’s a Cowboys fan. In a video re-enactment of the killings, Randolph wore a gray Cowboys T-shirt.

    “It only takes one of you to to stop death,” Deputy Special Public Defender Clark Patrick told the jury.

    Randolph had told police that he noticed a man in a black ski mask after finding his wife shot in the head in an entrance hallway of their home in May 2008. He brushed up against the man and shot him five times, he said.

    But prosecutors said Randolph’s story did not make sense, and they pointed to similarities between the two killings and the death of his second wife.

    Randolph was arrested in the double homicide in January 2009, and it took more than eight years for the case to go to trial.

    Prosecutors say Randolph was motivated by greed, and stood to gain upward of $360,000 in insurance money from Causse’s death. That was less than the roughly $500,000 in insurance money he collected after the 1986 death of his second wife, Becky Gault.

    Defense attorneys had argued that Randolph’s last marriage was going well before Causse died, and they called Gault’s death a “red herring.”

    A coroner ruled that Gault died by suicide. Randolph ultimately was acquitted after being tried for murder, but he pleaded guilty to tampering with a witness for offering an undercover officer posing as a cellmate a car title and cash to kill the star witness in the Utah case.

    Chief Deputy District Attorney Jacqueline Bluth called Randolph the “worst of the worst” criminals, adding that he’s dangerous even from behind bars.

    “Shouldn’t the death penalty be about the worst of the worst?” the prosecutor said. “It should be saved for those human beings in society who are the worst of the worst.”

    Las Vegas jury sentences man to death for murders of wife, hit man

    By David Ferrara
    Las Vegas Review-Journal

    For more than nine years, she waited for punishment for the man who ordered her mother dead and executed the hitman.

    “It’s been way too long,” Colleen Beyer said. “And it’s hurt every day.”

    On Wednesday, a jury decided that Thomas Randolph, 62, should be put to death for having a handyman kill his sixth wife, Sharon Causse, and fatally shooting Michael James Miller, the man he had kill her.

    Beyer cried and embraced friends after the sentence was announced.

    “I feel that’s really what he deserves,” Beyer said. “He’s a monster. He’s one evil, evil monster.”

    A panel of eight women and four men handed down two death sentences, one for each victim. Randolph showed no emotional reaction, but turned and gave a thumbs up to a television news producer as he walked out of the courtroom.

    Last week, the same jurors convicted Randolph of two counts of first-degree murder with a deadly weapon and one count of conspiracy to commit murder.

    Randolph had told police that he noticed a man in a black ski mask after finding his wife shot in the head in an entrance hallway of their home in May 2008. He brushed up against the man and shot him five times, he said.

    But prosecutors said Randolph’s story did not make sense, and they pointed to similarities between the two killings and the death of his second wife.

    Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson praised prosecutors and detectives who peeled back layers of Randolph’s version of events.

    “I hope the family and friends of the two people who lost their lives get some comfort and some satisfaction,” Wolfson said. “I think justice was done. A death verdict was justice in this case.”

    Randolph was arrested in the double homicide in January 2009, and it took more than eight years for the case to go to trial.

    Prosecutors say Randolph was motivated by greed, and stood to gain upward of $360,000 in insurance money from Causse’s death. That was less than the roughly $500,000 in insurance money he collected after the 1986 death of his second wife, Becky Gault.

    “Shouldn’t the death penalty be about the worst of the worst?” the prosecutor said. “It should be saved for those human beings in society who are the worst of the worst.”

    Randolph gets death

    Jurors who convicted Thomas Randolph on two counts of first-degree murder in the killing of his wife and the man he ordered to execute her found three aggravating factors and two mitigating factors in deciding that he should die for his crimes.

    Aggravating factors


    — Randolph was convicted of first-degree murder in the death of Sharon Causse
    — The murder was committed to receive money
    — The killing of Michael James Miller was committed to receive money

    Mitigating factors


    — Randolph had an opiate addiction
    — His life had value to his family

    Man convicted of killing wife, hit-man on his way to death row

    LAS VEGAS (KSNV NEWS3LV) — Thomas Randolph is on his way to Nevada’s death row. He was convicted in June of murdering his wife for insurance money and killing the man he hired to shoot her.

    During Wednesday's sentencing, Randolph made a rambling statement to the judge, and the daughter of Randolph’s slain wife spoke in favor of the death penalty.

    “I was 5 months pregnant when Randolph killed my mom, and now my daughter Katie, who is almost 9, has never met her nana,” said Coleen Beyer.

    Randolph is expected to pursue an appeal to his sentence. During the trial, he alleged legal malpractice by his attorneys.
