C-Murder has been put in a house arrest program to await a retrial on a second-degree murder charge
C-Murder was freed from jail Monday night March 20th, 2006 after posting $500,000 bond set by a judge in Baton Rouge on second degree murder charge. From that point on the Louisiana rapper will remain under house arrest, during which he will wear a monitor so that authorities can track his whereabouts.
Thus, concerning the house arrest, Miller is restricted to his home and can only leave for court-approved appointments with his attorneys. The 35-year-old hip-hopster, whose real name is Corey Miller, is charged with the fatal shooting of 16-year-old Steve Thomas during a fight at a now-closed nightclub in Harvey on Jan. 12, 2002. Initially given a life sentence, he was released over the objections of prosecutors, who called him a "danger to the community."
