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 initially 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.
