Update: C-Murder To Remain In Jail, Bond Set At $1 Mil
After being sent back to jail for violating rules of his house arrest on Tuesday, former No Limit rapper C-Murder has been ordered to remain in a Gretna jail until his trial date and his bond has been doubled to $1 million, according to reports yesterday (March 12) by the Associated Press.
Due to stand trial a second time for the murder of 16-year-old Steve Thomas after the first one was ruled a mistrial, the rapper had left his grandmother’s house—the site of his house arrest for the last three years— several times since October, as indicated by an electronic monitor.
Reminding the rapper of his comments at a January hearing, the judge in the case, State District Judge Hans Liljeberg, had told C-Murder that he would “be looking for a reason” to increase his bond and warned him to conduct himself accordingly.” The rapper will stand trial on April 20. – Devin Chanda
