Cory “C-Murder” Miller was sentenced to life in prison today after being convicted of second degree murder this week.
District Judge Hans Liljeberg gave Miller the mandatory life sentence without the possibility of parole for murdering 16-year old Steve Thomas in 2002. This was the second trial in the case after his first conviction was overturned due to problems and motives of several of the witnesses.
After the sentencing, C-Murder’s attorney Ron Rakosky filed a motion to be removed as the rapper’s attorney and that he wouldn’t be representing C-Murder for his appeal process. Rakowsky stated that he hadn’t been paid by the brother of music mogul Master P.
C-Murder is already serving time after pleading no contest to two counts of attempted murder from a separate shooting in 2001.
