According to contactmusic.com, Master P.'s brother rapper C-Murder (real name Corey Miller) will spend the next 10 years of his life in prison after pleading no contest to charges of second degree murder of a 16-year old boy during a brawl at a New Orleans nightclub back to 2002. He was convicted in 2003 and handed a life sentence, but it was overturned in 2006 after he had spent three years in a Louisiana prison. A new trial was granted based on claims prosecutors improperly withheld criminal background information on three of their witnesses. Miller was placed on house arrest pending the retrial, which was due to begin this week, but he reportedly struck a deal with prosecutors on Wednesday (5.27.2009) and has pleaded no contest to the two counts of attempted murder. As per the agreement, Miller will be sentenced to 10 years in prison - but the term will not be handed down officially until August 25th.

Prior to the agreement with prosecutors, Miller was facing a mandatory life sentence if convicted of teenager Steve Thomas' death.
