C-Murder Convicted of (You Guessed It) Murder
No Limit rapper and the youngest brother of Master P, Corey "C-Murder" Miller, was found guilty of second-degree murder yesterday from a fan shooting back in 2002. What a shocker!
Miller had been charged with killing 16-year-old Steve Thomas at a New Orleans nightclub and is now facing a mandatory life sentence in prison.
According to the New Orleans Times Picayune, a jury handed down a 10-2 verdict in the morning but Judge Hans Liljeberg called for more deliberation after questioning the validity of one juror's vote. After returning to the deliberation room, a second guilty verdict was reached in the afternoon.
Miller was first brought to trial for Thomas' murder in 2003, and he changed his rapper name from "C-Murder" to "C-Miller" in the wake of the charges. He was found guilty and received a life sentence, but that verdict was later tossed by the Louisiana Supreme Court in 2006.
In May, Miller pleaded no contest to separate a second-degree attempted murder charge after pulling a gun on a bouncer at a Baton Rouge nightclub in 2001.
I guess this guy wasn’t your average studio gangsta.
