Did C- Murder kill a man in 2002 or not?
This post was contributed by a community member. The views expressed here are the author's own. Prison insiders indicate this move to the Hunt facility signals C-Murder getting closer to a better life, ' most inmates transferred there are usually done so because of their transition to freedom ' stated one prisoner from Angola who spoke with a TRU Team member, during the transfer of C-Murder to Hunt Prison. C-Murder has always stated he was innocent of all charges and to this day maintains his innocence; perhaps we are seeing signs of the system moving in a positive direction for Miller's future. According to sources close to the case, the REAL killer recorded a confession to the murder of which Miller was convicted in the presence of his own legal counsel and this confession had been offered up to the authorities in Louisiana on multiple occasions but fell on deaf ears for quite some time apparently. Now that news of the reported confession has been circulated through the legal system and some media outlets, perhaps we are seeing an early manifestation of Lady Justice taking off her blindfold!!!
Corey Miller, the rapper known as C-Murder, failed this week in a bid to have his conviction for a killing in Harvey thrown out or retried, after a judge ruled that the recantations of two witnesses in the case were not credible. Judge Steven Enright of 24th Judicial District Court ruled Wednesday that Miller, who was convicted in of fatally shooting Steven Thomas in a Harvey nightclub in , did not meet the burden of proof for post-conviction relief. Miller's attorney had argued that his conviction should be thrown out, or at least that he should be granted a hearing to argue the matter in court. Citing precedents, Enright wrote that recantations of previous testimony "are highly suspicious" and rarely rise to the level necessary to grant a new trial. Except in rare circumstances, he wrote, "a new trial should not be granted on the basis of a recantation because it is tantamount to perjury so as to discredit the witness at a later trial. Miller's attorney, Paul Barker, could not be reached for comment about whether he will appeal the ruling. His high-profile case was thrown back into the spotlight in June when the true-crime television series "Reasonable Doubt" focused on it, interviewing two witnesses who have now changed their stories.
