C-murder Wants Murder Trial Postponed

Rapper C-MURDER is appealing to a U.S. court to postpone his second murder trial because the judge presiding over his case is seeking re-election to the Judicial District Court post.
The New Orleans, Louisiana star - brother of rap mogul Master P - is currently awaiting a retrial over charges he shot dead 16-year-old Steve Thomas in a club in 2002.
He was convicted and handed a life sentence for second-degree murder in 2003, but it was overturned in 2006.
Jury selection in the retrial of C-Murder, real name Corey Miller, was due to begin on Tuesday (14Oct08), but the star's lawyer Ron Rakosky filed papers in court last Friday (10Oct08) seeking a temporary delay.
Judge Martha Sassone, who presided over the original trial, is also due to oversee proceedings in the new case - but she is currently standing for re-election after 18 years at the 24th Judicial District Court.
Rakosky wants his client's retrial to be put back at least three weeks, and until after the U.S. presidential election on 4 November (08).
