C-Murder’s Murder Trial Delayed Until October

The murder trial of New Orleans rapper Corey “C-Murder” Miller has been pushed back until October.

 

The rapper was slated to go on trial on June 9, but after attorneys on both sides of the case met with Judge Martha Sassone, the trial was delayed until October 14.

 

C-Murder is charged with second-degree murder for allegedly shooting a 16-year-old to death inside a Harvey nightclub named Club Platinum.

 

According to the Associated Press, lawyers are haggling over some of the witnesses’ backgrounds, which was a major issue in the rapper’s first trial.

 

In September of 2003, a jury convicted Miller for shooting Steve Thomas during an altercation in the club.

 

In March of 2006, the rapper’s mandatory life sentence was overturned, by the Louisiana Supreme Court, after it was learned the prosecution expunged some of their witnesses criminal records, in order to boost their credibility in court.

 

C-Murder, 37, is currently free on $500,000 dollars bail, but is under strict house arrest.
