Kim Kardashian West and Monica Team to Fight For C-Murder’s Freedom
Kim Kardashian West arrives to attend the amfAR Gala New York at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City on Feb. 6, 2019.
The rapper is serving a life sentence tied to a 2002 murder at a nightclub.
Kardashian, who has made prison reform one of her areas of focus over the past few years, tweeted on Sunday (Aug. 16) that Miller — the brother of rapper Master P — would not have been convicted of the crime if a jury was given the same evidence today.
“On January 18, 2002 a tragedy occurred when a young man was killed. The next day Corey Miller was arrested for the murder,” she said in a series of tweets. “The jury convicted Corey 10-2 and he was sentenced him to life in prison. If his trial was today, the jury would have had to be unanimous for him to be convicted… Since his trial, witnesses have recanted, new evidence of his potential innocence has come to light, and there are claims of jurors being pressured into voting to convict.”
