Corey “C-Murder” Miller is currently serving a life sentence for an incident tied to a 2002 murder at a nightclub.
His ex-girlfriend, Monica, and reality star, Kim Kardashian-West, are teaming up to free the rapper.
Kim, who has made prison reform one of her strong pursuits and areas of focus over the past few years, tweeted on Sunday (Aug. 16th) that Miller, the brother of Master P, would not have been convicted of the crime if a jury was given the same evidence today.
In a series of tweets, she explained the situation of what went down the night of the incident. “On January 18, 2002 a tragedy occurred when a young man was killed. The next day Corey Miller was arrested for the murder,” she writes. “The jury convicted Corey 10-2 and he was sentenced him to life in prison. If his trial was today, the jury would have had to be unanimous for him to be convicted … Since his trial, witnesses have recanted, new evidence of his potential innocence has come to light, and there are claims of jurors being pressured into voting to convict.”
