Angola inmate Corey 'C-Murder' Miller ordered to pay $1.15 million to family of slain teen
A Jefferson Parish judge has ordered Corey Miller, the rapper known as "C-Murder" who is serving a life sentence for killing a teenager at a Harvey nightclub in 2002, to pay the victim’s family $1.15 million.
Judge Glenn Ansardi of 24th Judicial District Court in Gretna had found Miller liable for the killing of Steve Thomas in a civil proceeding in 2013.
On Wednesday, he ordered him to pay $500,000 for each of Thomas’ parents, $150,000 to account for the suffering that Thomas, 16, experienced during the hour he lived after being shot, and $4,492 for the funeral costs.
Ansardi granted George and Delores Thomas the full amount sought by their attorney, Trey Mustian.
