The long-delayed second murder trial of Corey Miller, who gained fame as the rapper C-Murder, is set to begin Monday.

Miller, the brother of rapper Master P, is charged with second-degree murder and faces a mandatory life sentence if convicted of killing 16-year-old Steve Thomas during a brawl in a New Orleans area nightclub in 2002.

Miller was convicted in 2003, but the judge granted a new trial after finding prosecutors improperly kept the defense from seeing criminal background information on three witnesses.

Miller, who spent most of his time since the last trial on house arrest, has been in the East Baton Rouge Parish jail since pleading no contest in May to two counts of attempted second-degree murder in a 2001 incident at a nightclub there.
