C-Murder Denied Bond, Will Remain In Prison

Corey "C-Murder" Miller was denied

a request to be released on bond from prison today (April 12) because the rapper

still faces other felony charges.

State District Judge Martha Sassone made her

decision based on an incident in August 2001, in which Miller was charged with

attempted first-degree murder after attempting to fire a shot at the owner of

a Baton Rouge nightclub.

Ronald Rakosky, Miller’s lawyer, argued that

Miller should be released because the state has not pursued the charges in over

two years.

Miller also faces a charge of battery on a prison

guard, after he allegedly attacked a guard inside of the Jefferson Parish jail.

He will faces those charges in court in June.

Miller was granted a new trial last week after

a judge ruled that prosecutors withheld information about the criminal pasts

of several witnesses.
