Update: C-Murder Convicted of Murder

C-Murder was found guilty of second-degree murder today (August 11) twice. At first, the presiding judge ruled the verdict invalid, requesting more jury deliberation, but eventually convicted the former No Limit rapper later in the afternoon.

According to The Times-Picayune, the bench came up with a 10-2 vote in favor of conviction at 1:40 p.m. The New Orleans rapper, born Cory Miller, will face a mandatory life sentence behind bars. He will find out when he will officially be sentenced on Friday. 

As XXLMag.com previously reported, C-Murder (born Corey Miller) was on trial for the 2002 murder of 16-year-old Steve Thomas. His previous 2003 conviction was thrown out for a new trial.

Earlier this morning, Judge Hans Liljeberg rejected the jury’s first verdict believing one juror changed their vote to conclude the second day of deliberations early.

Before today’s deliberations began a juror in the case also requested a departure from the panel. The juror, whose request was denied by Liljeberg, was reportedly sleeping during deliberations and other times quoting Bible scripture. John Kennedy

    I’ll tell you what…

    Money talks. If this dude didn’t have doe to grease the pockets of his defense team, he would have been way underneath the prison, waiting on his “Green Mile” moment.

    God bless him, but if I did kill that kid, he’ll get what he deserves, with or without a jury’s decision.

    i use to be a huge C-murder fan, but after all the shit that has come to light since his charges (youtube video of him shooting up the strip junt) dude deserves to be in the pen for the rest of his life. I think the knicca is straight up evil. Who merks one of their own fans?

    • john bookman

        It’s good to know that if I murdered one of your relatives, I can count on you to be on my side….

  • $ykotic/Don McCaine

    Sounds like the judge wants an unanimous verdict.

    I wish jail on no man, but Corey may wanna enjoy his freedom right now because it seems like the fat lady is harmonizing before her performance.

    I don’t know what to think.
    He seems to be torn between having enough money to buy a fairer chance than any of us can and a system that seems to be hell bent on horse fucking him.
    Let’s hope the truth comes from this.

    Over the years I have learned that in some cases you have to let sh*t slide. Seven years later and C. Miller still deals with the repercussions of some dude talking sh*t or whatever it was that caused this sh*t to go down. Had he let it slide, I doubt C would even remember what the dude said or what it was about.

      That is directly in the face of what it takes to be a “real” n**ga, and apparently to be “real,” one has to be willing to take the chance of being shot/shot at, stabbed, robbed, arrested, embarrassed and/or beaten. This rap shit is not safe for work, word to Tony Grands.

    Damn this ish still going on?

  • DownSouth

    This is why rap cats need to leave the hard act alone. That’s just like Brisco tryna act like he wasn’t shook after the robbery. Cats need to be like Murs, after you finish in the studio, GO HOME!


    • legendkiller61

      brisco think he hard

  • Mutada/Mullah Atari

    Looks like he may have some grounds on apeal, with all the weirdness in the Jury room. But for all intents and purposes its a rap for this Tupac clone. To bad for his son (Young Trump), and the rest of his kids.

    • Jack Tripper

      To bad for his son (Young Trump)

      That’s his sister’s kid. Not his.

  • Monty B.

    Wow. 7 years+ to get a guilty verdict. I wonder how much money was paid to the defense team?

    Just imagine how much the civil case is gonna cost.

  • TxTitan

    I Liked his music but he dumb as fuck. Dont forget about just recently he was on camera shooting in a club…..stupid.


    Damn C, thats fucked up. SMH. i think he knew this day was coming.

  • shone jones

    You would have thought that Corey would have learned what had happened to his older brother Kevin.

  • $ykotic/Don McCaine

    Damn that was fast. Another dude gone.

    • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grands

      We knew it was coming.

      Countless lives ruined behind one careless thought. No pity here, though.

  • lostgyrl

    And another one bites the dust! What a waste of time. People have other things to do than sit and deliberate a case that should has never went back to court! Face facts, you can not commit murder and think you’re life is more precious than the one you took!!!!

    Good Luck In The Pen!!

    i luv the song he made wit BG when he first shot that fan. he addresses this issue in it. c murder sure was relaxed being locked on a muder charge. he was filming his shit from lock down. classic song.

  • tronthadon

  • 11KAP

    Damn! Shit ain’t sweet.

  • Beast McCoy

    Priceless… and I mean that in the worst kind of way. It is priceless the value of a life, the ones we make and in some cases the lives we break and in the worst case scenario – the ones some of us take. I guess it really is true that every time a man kills another man – two men are dead – One to Rest In Peace & the Other to be the living, walking dead inside a prison. Sad, Sad, Sad…

  • DetroitDraper

    Honestly he probably did it or had it done but Im sure it wasnt as simple as him just killin an adoring fan. Whatever the situation was ones dead and the other most likely gone from great multi-millionaire life to life as a prison king pin(whatever merit that holds).


  • Ali – london UK

    he deserves what he gets. If you cant do the time dont do the crime. you fake gangster take it like a man do your time….london UK

  • pecangirl

    Hey ya’ll have some valid points but, like somebody “said” you can’t take someone else’s life because u are invisible & the law is not going to catch up wit me. Man get the fuck outta here! I have a 26 year old brother lock up right know in Florida for LIFE and he ain’t kill nobody. He just has a lot of small drug charges so this to me this system is so fuck up! I don’t know all the details of the C-Murder case but, u gotta think about the other person’s family they can never talk to there child again because he is no longer here! To be honest I feel sorry for both families because they both lost a family member the only difference is C-murder can still eat and watch t.v.& talk to his family!
