A Judge Rules That Rapper C-Murder Is Civilly Liable For Teens 2002 Death


Corey Miller, best known as rapper C-Murder, was convicted twice of murder for killing 16-year old Steve Thomas in 2002.  Thomas’s parents later filed a wrongful death lawsuit and a judge ruled Tuesday that the rapper is civilly liable.

Miller’s 2003 conviction was originally tossed out, after it was discovered that the prosecution withheld criminal background info on key eyewitnesses from his attorney. Prosecutors denied any wrongdoing and retried Miller.  This time around the rapper was convicted of second degree murder and issued a life sentence in 2009, in a 10-2 vote.

In spite of the second conviction, Corey “C-Murder” Miller has maintained his innocence and has taken his appeals all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.  However, it’s declined to hear his argument on the case.

Now, a judge has delivered a ruling in the wrongful death suit brought against the 42-year old.   Judge Glenn Ansardi ruled Tuesday of this week that he is also civilly liable.  The ruling was no surprise to the rappers attorney, Roy Maughan, Jr. who said, “A judgment against him in this proceeding is of little consequence to him.  What can you take from a man who has lost his liberty? … There’s no money to be taken.”

That being said, a court date has yet to be set for the civil trial, where it’ll be decided how much, if any at all, Miller must pay Thomas’s parents.
