Rap­per C-Mur­der de­nied chance for re­trial in slay­ing

The Tribune (SLO) - - Espresso -

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.
