A Baton Rouge, Louisiana
grand jury has indicted Corey "C-Murder" Miller on attempted second-degree
murder charges, stemming from an incident in at a local New Orleans nightclub
three years ago.
The incident occurred in
August of 2001 when the owner of Club Raggs refused to allow the platinum selling
rapper into the establishment without a proper search.
The incident allegedly sent
Miller into a violent rage and he drew his pistol in an attempt to shoot the
owner in the back.
When the gun jammed, Miller
allegedly fixed it and fired a shot in the floor. He allegedly attempted to
fire a second shot and when the gun malfunctioned again, he fled the scene in
a 2001 Ford Excursion.
Miller faces a 50-year sentence
if convicted of the second-degree attempted murder charges.
Prosecutors refused to answer
why it took almost three years to bring the case to the grand jury.
Miller is already awaiting
a second murder trial in Jefferson Parish. He was found guilty of shooting a
16-year-old to death inside of a now defunct nightclub.
The mandatory life sentence
was never imposed because the D.A. withheld evidence and expunged the criminal
records of prosecution witnesses.
A second trial is set for
September 13, 2004.
