Witness Recants Statement On C-Murder’s Appearance

eye witness recant statement c-murder

One of two key witnesses who identified rapper Corey “C-Murder” Miller as the lone gunman in a 2002 nightclub killing in Harvey has now recanted, claiming in a sworn statement that Jefferson Parish sheriff’s detectives pressured him to lie under threat of a criminal charge.

Miller’s attorney, Paul Barker, filed a memorandum Tuesday, arguing that the newly obtained affidavit from the witness, Kenneth Jordan, warrants a hearing and, ultimately, his release.

Miller, 47, is the younger brother of Percy Miller, the rap mogul better known as Master P. His claims of innocence, broadcast in rap albums released from Angola State Penitentiary, where he is serving a life sentence, have helped feed interest in the case and support for his cause. It’s the subject of an episode that airs Wednesday in a true-crime series on Investigations Discovery.
