    A University of Connecticut music professor who faced being fired amid allegations of misconduct with students and child sexual abuse has retired with a nearly $69,000 annual pension.

    UConn officials said on Wednesday that Robert Miller, 67, exercised his right to retire before disciplinary proceedings concluded. His retirement took effect April 1.

    The Associated Press left a message seeking comment for Miller on Wednesday. He hasn't been charged with any crime.

    Miller was suspended last year. An independent investigation report released in February alleged there was evidence Miller engaged in rampant behavioral misconduct with UConn students and inappropriately touched children in the late 1960s and early 1990s.

    Former fine arts Dean David Woods also faces potential firing for allegedly failing to take appropriate action against Miller. Woods denies the allegations.
