In 2007, the former couple divorced. It was revealed that Sherrie and Daly had a fight at a restaurant in Memphis, Tennessee.
Daly claimed that at night after the fight, his fourth wife attacked him with a steak knife. The author was not arrested at the time since she fled the scene with the former couple’s only child together before the authority arrived.

Years after the divorce, Sherrie sued her ex-husband’s ex-lover.
Where is She Now?
Sherrie lives a considerably quiet life raising her two sons. Yet, she may not be totally out of the law’s nest.
In 2015, Miller spent 10 days as a fugitive from justice before turning in on the charges of harassment and extortion.
This case started when Miller allegedly found sexually explicit pictures on her then-boyfriend’s phone. The pictures belonged to a middle school teacher.
Rather than ignoring it, Miller texted and threatened the woman that she was going to post them on social media.
Prior to the incident, Miller had asked for protection as the teacher was said to have been threatening her. Well, Daly’s ex-wife eventually got charged and was out on a $3,000 bond.
