Jailed rapper C-MURDER is facing life behind bars after his latest attempt to get his second-degree murder conviction thrown out failed.

The hip-hop star, real name COREY MILLER, was convicted on 30 September, 2003, in the shooting death of 16-year-old Steve Thomas, at a New Orleans, Louisiana, nightclub. He faces a mandatory life sentence without parole.

In April (04), State District Judge Martha Sassone ordered a new trial on the grounds that prosecutors withheld information on the criminal history of their key witnesses.

Prosecutors appealed the ruling, and earlier this month (MAR05) two of the three judges on a panel of the 5th Circuit Court of Appeal ruled that even without the witnesses' testimony "there was an abundance of other evidence which fully established Miller's guilt".

C-Murder asked for a rehearing before the entire court, but the request was denied yesterday (29MAR05). His lawyer plans to appeal to the state Supreme Court.

C-Murder's brothers, Master P and SILKK THE SHOCKER, are due to appear in court today (30MAR05) on gun charges filed against them in California.
