    Description of Crime:

    Corey Miller is a popular rap singer known to his fans as C-Murder. He was convicted for the beating and fatal shooting of 16-year-old Steve Thomas, outside the Platinum Club in Harvery, Louisiana on January 12, 2002. Thomas was described as an aspiring rapper and loyal fan of C-Murder's who had his bedroom walls covered in the rapper's posters. On the evening of the shooting Thomas entered the club with a fake I.D. so that he could participate in a MC battle.

    The police did not have enough evidence to charge C-Murder on the night of the incident however he was later charged after he was arrested for disturbing the peace and criminal trespassing at the New Orleans House of Blues where he had been banned from entering due to a previous incident.

    The rapper was out on bond when the Plantinum Club incident occurred for a previous charge of attempted murder in Baton Rouge. There C-Murder allegedly fired his gun outside of a club when a doorman refused to let him enter without submitting to a physical search.

    On September 30, 2003 the jury found C-Murder guilty of second-degree murder and he was sentenced to a mandatory life sentence with no possibility for parole.
