C-Murder Accused of Violating House Arrest Terms
Prosecutors in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana have accused Corey "C-Murder" Miller of violating the terms of his house arrest and have asked that he be thrown back in jail while awaiting his retrial on murder charges. Miller had already spent nearly 3 years behind bars for the slaying of 16-year-old Steven Thomas when his conviction was overturned and he was released into a home incarceration program, pending a retrial.
According to New Orleans’ Times Picayune, prosecutors have named several instances where Miller has violated the terms of his release, the first of which occurred during a court-approved trip on May 4th. Surveillance cameras at the Smoothie King fast food restaurant captured Miller making an unauthorized stop there, and later on that day he met with his girlfriend and arrived back home more than 3 hours after his scheduled curfew.
Additionally, Miller is being accused of being out of range of his electronic monitoring device on two separate occasions for extended periods of time and failing to pay a $50 weekly home incarceration fee. Earlier this week, police attempted to revoke his house arrest, but were stopped by a judge who ordered that he be returned to his home. When Miller appeared before the judge the next day, he was ordered to pay his overdue court fees and have his monitoring device recalibrated.
Prosecutors filed a motion yesterday requesting that the judge presiding over the case "show cause . . . as to why his home incarceration privileges should not be revoked." Although the case record has been sealed, court officials have stated that an order would be issued next week that would offer an explanation. Miller also has two separate attempted murder charges pending in nearby Baton Rouge.
