C-Murder’s Appeal Denied by Louisiana Court


C-Murder's appeal denied! He was convicted of murder in 2009 No dice for jailed rapper C-Murder, who has lost his latest appeal to overturn his 2009 murder conviction.
C Murder, born Corey Miller, was sentenced to life in prison in 2003 after he was found guilty of the 2002 murder of 16-year-old Steve Thomas in a nightclub in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The conviction for second degree murder was overturned in 2006 and a second trial took place in 2009. But Murder/Miller was once again sentenced to spend the rest of his life behind bars. Miller, the younger brother of rap star Master P, claims he is innocent. He initiated an appeal earlier this year, claiming he didn't receive a fair trial because jurors were allowed to hear unsubstantiated testimony about witnesses allegedly being threatened by him.

But a three-judge panel at Louisiana's 5th Circuit Court of Appeal rejected the motion on Wednesday and chose to uphold the ruling against Miller and his lengthy sentence. So C Murder will remain incarcerated.

What do you think of this case?
