Rapper's brother on trial in slaying of 16-year-old

The brother of rap mogul Master P faces trial today in Gretna, La., in the shooting death of a 16-year-old nightclub patron.

Corey Miller, 30 — a rapper who goes by the name C-Murder — was indicted in March in the slaying of Steve Thomas, who was killed after an argument at the Platinum Club on Jan. 12.

Authorities said Miller, the younger brother of rapper Percy Miller, was out on bail on an attempted murder charge in a separate case when he allegedly shot Thomas in the chest.

Corey Miller denied involvement in the shooting.
