Murder to be Tried for Murder

LTB default 777x437

Corey Miller is now awaiting retrial for a second-degree murder charge after his conviction and life sentence were overturned on appeal.  Miller is a rap artist who went by the name "C-Murder" at the time of the alleged murder.  C-Murder was charged with murdering a 16-year-old at a night club in Harvey, Louisiana, in 2002.  His defense was probably not helped by the prosecution's frequent references to him as "Mr. Murder."  (I don't know for sure that that happened, but it wouldn't surprise me.)

In a clever and subtle move, C-Murder has apparently now changed his stage name to "C-Miller."  I don't see how that's going to help.  If you're going to play this game, why not change your name to something like "C-Innocent" or "Dr. Gandhi"?  "C-Miller" just destroys all his street cred without helping his case one bit.

Peace out.
