C-Murder’s Murder Conviction Overturned

cmurder.jpgCorey “C-Murder” Miller awaits his release from the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center in Gretna, Louisiana after the Louisiana Supreme Court overturned his murder conviction on Friday (March 10th). The former No Limit rapper was convicted of second-degree murder in 2003 for the shooting of 16-year-old Steven Thomas and sentenced to life in prison. The 2002 shooting took place at a nightclub and several witnesses identified Miller as the shooter. The rapper’s lawyers appealed the guilty verdict in late 2003, claiming that prosecutors withheld evidence and unlawfully cleared parking tickets and a warrant for a friend of a witness. Miller was granted a new trial in 2004, but the second-degree murder conviction was eventually upheld. In early 2006, Miller was granted another new trial. While the State decides if they will retry Miller for a second time, he is expected to be free on bond shortly.
The former No Limit rapper recorded his last album, The TRUest Shit I Ever Said, while behind bars using contraband equipment, even managing to film a video for the album’s first single.
