Jury Selection Starts For C-Murder's Murder Trial

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.

Miller, who was

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.

Miller allegedly

used a cell phone that was smuggled into the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center

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.
