Hip-Hop enthusiasts have long been vocal about the release of C-Murder, the brother of Hip-Hop mogul Master P, who has been serving a life sentence at the Louisiana State Penitentiary since August 14, 2009, for the death of 16-year-old Steve Thomas. Kim Kardashian has emerged as one of the leading advocates, denouncing what she perceives as a “miscarriage of justice” in C-Murder’s case.
C-Murder, also known as Corey Miller, has been incarcerated for over two decades for the second-degree murder of Steve Thomas. He maintains his innocence, alleging that another individual committed the crime, and his numerous appeals have been fruitless so far.
Kim has taken a keen interest in the C-Murder case and openly supports his quest for freedom. In a tweet, she highlighted a new Louisiana state law that allows innocent individuals to present claims of factual innocence post-conviction, which could potentially lead to a new trial for C-Murder. She voiced her concerns about his 10-2 verdict, citing that the Supreme Court has since declared such verdicts unconstitutional, though not retroactively applicable.
Kim asserts that C-Murder deserves the opportunity to present evidence and witnesses that were previously unavailable, especially since the only witnesses in the case have recanted their testimony. With the absence of any remaining evidence against him, Kim argues that it is essential to give Corey Miller a day in court to test the veracity of the recanted statements and prove his innocence in the tragic shooting of Steve Thomas.
Corey Miller, a prominent figure in Hip-Hop, made waves with his platinum-selling album “Life or Death” in 1998 and released a total of nine successful albums. His collaborations, including the rap classic “Down For My N***s,” have left an enduring mark on the genre.
