C-Murder Indicted On 2001 Attempted Murder Charges

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.
