New Orleans rapper Corey "C-Murder" Miller has been found guilty of murdering a 16-year-old fan, the Times-Picayune reports. The teen was shot during a nightclub brawl in 2002. The rapper—who changed his stage name to C-Miller after the incident—was convicted of the killing in 2003 but a mistrial was later declared. He will be sentenced later this week for both the fan's murder and the attempted murder of a nightclub owner in 2001. (More murder stories.)
