Master P’s younger brother, Corey “C-Murder” Miller will almost certainly spend the rest of his life in jail after losing a Supreme Court appeal of his murder sentence. Via Hip Hop DX:
US News reports that the court rejected the appeal, which stemmed from C-Murder killing a 16-year-old fan in Louisiana.
C-Murder’s attorneys argued that because federal juries must reach unanimous verdicts in criminal cases C-Murder should not have been convicted. A jury voted 10-2 to convict the rapper.
However, Louisiana is one of two states that allow for non-unanimous convictions.
Miller was sentenced to life in 2009 in relation to a the 2002 nightclub shooting death of 16 year-old Steve Thomas.
