C-Murder conviction overturned; release next?
C-Murder could be released from prison as early as Wednesday after his second-degree murder conviction was overturned Friday by the Louisiana Supreme Court. The high court upheld an earlier ruling that the jury should have been informed of the criminal backgrounds of the witnesses who testified against Murder, who has since adopted the name C-Miller. He could still be retried, and also faces an unrelated attempted murder charge in Baton Rouge, La. "He should be released," his lawyer, Ron Rakosky, told the New Orleans Times-Picayune. "If they want to retry him, let them go do it. But I don't think he should be locked up." C-Murder, the younger brother of Master P, was arrested in January 2002 for the shooting death of a 16-year-old at a New Orleans area nightclub. C-Murder, whose real name is Corey Miller, was convicted of fatally shooting Steve Thomas after the two had an argument Jan. 12, 2002, at the Platinum Club in Harvey, La. Latest news...
