As Def Sounds previously reported, the ruling of the appeal for C-Murder‘s 2002 murder conviction was scheduled to take place in late November of 2012, but the U.S. Supreme Court delayed the hearing and the rapper had to wait until a later date to find out his fate. Now, the time has come for C-Murder to have his appeal heard, and the New Orleans rapper didn’t fare to well as he had the appeal of his murder conviction rejected by The Supreme Court.
As reported by NOLA.com, on Tuesday (February 19th), Corey Miller better known by his stage name C-Murder had the hearing of appeal for his 2002 murder conviction, and the appeal was rejected as the jury voted 10-2 to convict the rapper.
Although the jury did not come back with a unanimous decision, Louisiana is one of the two states, the other being Oregon, that allow for non-unanimous convictions for some crimes.
With his appeal rejected, C-Murder will continue serving out his life sentence, which was handed down in 2009 for killing a 16-year-old fan during an altercation in a Harvey, Louisiana nightclub.
