C-Murder has been sentenced to life in prison today (August 15) after being convicted of second-degree murder three days ago.

District Judge Hans Liljeberg delivered the mandatory sentence after the bench voted 10-2 in favor of conviction on Tuesday, according to the Associated Press.

As XXLMag.com previously reported, C-Murder was found guilty of the shooting that killed 16-year-old Steve Thomas in 2002. The initial verdict reached this week was declared invalid, due to Liljeberg’s suspicion that a juror changed his or her vote merely to end deliberations. 

Hours later, the same vote came in, which would become the steadfast verdict.

C-Miller was found guilty in this case back in 2003, but he was granted a new trial when the conviction was overturned. -John Kennedy
