C-Murder Ordered to Pay More than $1.1 Million to Victim's Family

Corey Miller, the rapper also known as C-Murder, has been ordered by a Louisiana judge to pay more than $1.1 million to the family of a teenager he killed in 2002.

The New Orleans Advocate reports Jefferson Parish Judge Glenn Ansardi of the 24th Judicial District Court found Miller liable in a 2013 civil proceeding for the killing of 16-year-old Steve Thomas. On Wednesday, he ordered Miller to pay $500,000 to each of Thomas’ parents and $150,000 to account for the victim’s suffering.

The parents’ attorney, Trey Mustian, says the order is more of a vindication of their son than any potential monetary award.

Miller was convicted for killing Thomas during a brawl outside the Platinum Club in Harvey on Jan. 12, 2002.

The man is serving a life sentence, so it’s not like he could spend $1.1 million on anything else — even if he wanted to. The question is, where is he going to get it? His brother? Royalties?
