Master P’s Brother Faces Trial in Death
GRETNA, La. (AP) _ The brother of rap mogul Master P faces trial Monday in the shooting death of a 16-year-old nightclub patron.
Corey Miller, 30 _ a rapper who goes by the name C-Murder _ was indicted in March in the slaying of Steve Thomas, who was killed after an argument at the Platinum Club on Jan. 12.
Authorities said Miller, the younger brother of rapper Percy Miller, was out on bail on an attempted murder charge in a separate case when he allegedly shot Thomas in the chest.
Corey Miller denied involvement in the shooting.
His lawyer, Ronald Rakosky, said the Louisiana Supreme Court was scheduled to hear arguments Monday in a related case in which the rapper is accused of bribing two Jefferson Parish sheriff’s deputies to smuggle a cell phone into jail for him.
Prosecutors said Miller allegedly used the phone to call friends and instruct them to harm or influence witnesses. The defense has said there is no evidence Miller even used the phone.
