Just eleven days after a Louisiana judge allowed C-Murder to remain on house arrest, the New Orleans rapper has been sent back to jail for alleged violations, according to the Associated Press.
Gretna authorities say that Murder’s electronic device that monitors his whereabouts was out of range early Monday morning (March 9) for about ten minutes, which is an violation of his house arrest terms. His lawyer claims the he was asleep at his grandmother’s house, where he has been serving his time for the last three years.
Booked at the Jefferson Parish Jail, Murder is set to appear in court on April 20th.
The former No Limit rapper is currently awaiting a retrial for the murder of 16-year-old Steve Thomas in January of 2002. Although originally convicted of second-degree murder charges back in 2003, he was granted a new trial when a separate judge said prosecutors withheld criminal background information to Miller’s lawyers on several key witnesses. In March 2006 he was released on $50,000 bond and put on house arrest. – Elan Mancini
