Jury selection will
start tomorrow in the case of Corey "C-Murder" Miller, who allegedly
shot a 16-year-old to death in a Jefferson Parish, New Orleans nightclub.
Steve Thomas, who
used a fake ID to enter the club, argued with Miller and was subsequently shot
in the chest inside of the Platinum club.
Almost 300 people
were inside of the club the night of the shooting and several witnesses identified
Miller as the shooter.

out on bail for an unrelated attempted murder charge at the time Thomas was
shot, claims that he is the victim of mistaken identity.
He admits to being
at the club but has denied that he was the shooter. He has pled not guilty.
In May of 2002,
a judge revoked Miller’s bond for $2 million dollars, after prosecutors claimed
he had friends threaten witnesses.

by prison guards to call associates and have them harm or influences witnesses.
Two guards were
fired for helping Miller sneak the cellphone into the prison.
Miller is the brother
of mogul Master-P and Silkk The Shocker.
