Rapper C-Murder denied chance for retrial in slaying
The rapper known as C-Murder failed to have his conviction in a 2002 fatal shooting in a New Orleans area nightclub thrown out or retried.
The New Orleans Advocate reports Judge Steven Enright ruled Wednesday that Corey Miller didn’t meet the burden of proof for postconviction relief. Miller’s attorneys had asked that his 2009 conviction in Steven Thomas’ death be thrown out.
Miller petitioned the court with sworn affidavits from eyewitnesses Kenneth and Darnell Jordan who now say they didn’t see Miller shoot.
