C-Murder Trial Starting

Written By: Victoria H. (Urban Editor)

Opening statements are set to start in the murder trial of rapper C-Murder (also known as Corey Miller).

Corey is charged with second degree murder in the 2002 shooting death of 16 year old fan Steve Thomas during a fight in a New Orleans club. Jury selection is now complete and the case is expected to start today.

If Corey is found guilty, he faces a mandatory life sentence. Corey was originally convicted in 2003, but a judge granted a new trial after the prosecutors denied the defense from seeing the criminal background information for three witnesses.
