A US rapper who actually voluntarily calls himself C-Murder has been arrested and brought up on, yep you guessed it, murder charges. C-Murder, real name Corey Miller, was has been sentenced to life imprisonment for the second-degree murder of one of his fans. Charming.

While awaiting trial, Miller found the time to release a CD called Death Around The Corner, presumably much to the chagrin of his lawyer. This isn't the first time that C-Murder has found himself in a spot of bother, either. In 2001 he fired shots at a nightclub owner who refused to let him into to a night-club while openly brandishing a gun. Oh C-Murder, when will you ever learn..?

Fellow rappers E-MoneyLaundering and D-InsiderTrading are also rumoured to be under investigation.
