A Louisiana appeals court has upheld the murder conviction and life sentence for New Orleans rapper C-Murder.

C-Murder (real name Corey Miller) was convicted in 2009 of shooting a teenager to death in a Louisiana nightclub in 2002. C-Murder is Master P’s brother and an uncle to actor/rapper Romeo.

Last week a three-judge panel from Louisiana’s 5th Circuit Court of Appeal rejected Miller’s argument that he didn’t get a fair trial and that prosecutors systematically eliminated black people from the jury.

Less than two weeks after Miller was sentenced for Steve Thomas’ death, he received a separate 10-year prison sentence for pleading no contest to charges he tried to shoot a Baton Rouge nightclub owner and bouncer in 2001.
