Attorneys Prepare For C-Murder Retrial

Attorneys

for No Limit Records rapper Corey "C-Murder" Miller will have another

chance to prove their client’s innocence, as the rapper’s retrial for murder

is scheduled to start today (Feb. 26) in New Orleans.Miller

is accused of shooting and killing Steve Thomas, 16, at a nightclub in 2002 during

an argument. After

a controversial trial, Miller was convicted of murder in 2003 and was sentenced

to life in prison. His

conviction was later overturned and he was released on appeal, when it was discovered

that prosecutors withheld information pertaining to the criminal background of

some of their witnesses. Miller

was freed in 2006 on $500,000 bail and has been on house arrest since July. He

is also facing trial for two counts of attempted murder in Baton Rouge. Miller

recently released a new single titled "Posted On Tha Block," taken from

his upcoming album Screamin’ 4 Vengeance. The

album is a collection of songs that address the circumstances surrounding his

incarceration for the murder of Thomas. "A

lot of people want to know what’s going on with me and what my personal feelings

are as far as what I’ve been through the last five years," Miller said. "I

expressed it on ‘Posted On Tha Block.’ The public’s getting a basic picture of

what I’ve been through, how I feel and what’s going on in my mind from that song."The

video for "Posted On Tha Block" was directed by Estevan Oriol, who shot

the clip in New Orleans. C-Murder

could not appear in the video due to a court imposed gag order.
