Scorned ex posts vandalism photo on MySpace

ST. PAUL, Minn. - A scorned 21-year-old told her ex-boyfriend that he couldn't prove she was the one who vandalized his apartment on three occasions - but then, police say, she posted a picture of the damage on MySpace.

Portlyn Miller is charged with two felonies for the vandalism. According to a criminal complaint filed in Ramsey County last week, she doused the inside of his house with paint - splashing it on the walls, toilet, washing machine, computer and other furniture. She also allegedly filled the house with trash, impaled a teddy bear on a pole with a knife through its head, and caused other damage.

Miller was still on the lam Tuesday.

The complaint doesn't say why she might have wanted revenge, but it says she found out the man had been seeing another woman when he broke up with her.
