A jailed friend of C-Murder (Corey Miller) has confessed to the slaying of teenager Steve Thomas just 3 weeks before Miller’s murder retrial.
C-Murder is facing second-degree murder charges for the killing, and faces a maximum of life in prison.
The crime occurred at a Harvey nightclub 7 years ago, and Thomas was 16 at the time of his death.
The former No Limit soldier was convicted of the homicide in 2003, but the ruling was overturned due to evidence that prosecutors withheld the criminal records of their witnesses.
Juan Flowers told authorities that he was with Miller the night of the killing, and was the one that fired the fatal shot.
However, Flowers also states that he and Miller are “not responsible” for the slaying.
Flowers is currently serving life for an unrelated 2007 murder in Georgia’s Fulton County.
Prosecutors have pointed out that the new information contradicts the testimony of Dwayne “Wango” Cobbins, another friend of C-Murder’s who was present the night of the killing.
Cobbins has stated under oath that he witnessed C-Murder bringing a small gun into the club, hidden in his boot.
When the altercation began, Miller and several others attacked Thomas.
Because of the pandemonium from the shooting, Cobbins admitted he didn’t see Miller shoot the teen.
However, he fled the scene with Flowers, who disclosed that “no one could see C (Corey Miller) shoot that tiny little gun.”
Cobbins is also incarcerated, serving 9 years in federal prison for obstruction of justice/threatening a witness in C-Murder’s case.
At press time, a judge is reviewing the new revelation and will decide if Juan Flowers will be transported from Georgia to testify.
Currently, Corey “C-Murder” Miller is serving a 10 year sentence on a separate attempted second-degree murder conviction.
In that case, club surveillance video shows the rapper attempting to shoot a club owner and bouncer after exchanging heated words over search regulations.
