On Friday Corey Miller, who's known to the world as rapper C-Murder, was sentenced to life in prison following a conviction of second-degree murder earlier in the week.

     Miller, the brother of Percy Miller, once known as rapper Master P, was convicted on a 10-2 vote by a a jury in the shooting death shooting a 16-year-old fan in Louisiana in 2001.

This was the second time that a jury convicted Miller in the case -- but a 2003 conviction was overturned.

Earlier in the week after the conviction was made known the victim's family left in tears and had this reaction:

"I'm not rejoicing. I feel bad for (Miller's) family. But at least they can see him. What have we got but a gravesite and a photograph," said George Thomas, whose 16-year-old son, Steve Thomas, was shot to death during the Jan. 12, 2001, brawl in a now-closed Harvey, La., nightclub.

Miller's family and friends also cried outside the courtroom. His sister, Germaine Miller, lost control of her emotions and accused the prosecutors of corruption. Not only that, but indirectly asked for the involvement of President Obama.

"I have feelings and I'm sorry for Steve Thomas' family," she said. "I lost a brother also! Where are all the witnesses at the club? Come out, be here, be a witness, come up here! If you [are] not Corey, don't worry about [the name] C-Murder, you come up here and show these people we need to deal with this! We need to deal with it. I'm tired of everybody holding their breath. Where is justice? Where is Barack?"
