Rapper Corey ‘C-Murder’ Miller Found Guilty Twice, Faces Life In Jail
Corey Miller, 38, better known as rapper C-Murder and the brother of Percy ‘Master P’ Miller the founder of No Limit Records and Vyshonn ‘Silkk the Shocker’ Miller, was found guilty of second-degree murder on Tuesday (August 11, 2009) by a Louisiana jury after Judge Hans Liljeberg sent them back to deliberate twice after first being deadlocked.
Since the jury became deadlocked in the case, the judge requested that the jurors come back with a verdict. After 3 hours of deliberating, the jury of seven women and five men came back with the verdict which was a 10-2 guilty verdict.
According to the judge during the trial, he believed that one of the jurors may have changed their vote in order to end the deliberations, therefore making the vote invalid, which in turn caused them to be sent back for further deliberations which also resulted in a guilty verdict.
A defense motion for a mistrial was denied by the judge.
C-Murder is accused of second-degree murder for the death of 16-year-old Steve Thomas back on January 12, 2002 at the Platinum Club in Louisiana, as reported on HipHopRX.com.
Meanwhile, Corey Miller faces life in prison for the crime.
On August 14th an official sentencing date will be scheduled for the rapper.
