Rapper C-Murder, younger brother of Master P, has been ordered to pay $1.4 million to the family of a teen who he was charged with killing years ago.

Back in 2002, 16-year-old Steve Thomas was killed when a brawl broke out outside of the now-closed Platinum Club in Harvey, La. According to MTV, a jury voted 10-2 that C-Murder, born Corey Miller, had shot Thomas once in the chest as the teen lay on his back while being beaten by the rapper's friends.

He was charged with second-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison. He currently remains at Louisiana State Prison at Angola, and was not in the courtroom on Wednesday when the judge made the ruling.

Judge Glenn Ansardi of 24th Judicial District Court ordered Miller to pay $500,000 for each of Thomas' parents, $150,000 to account for the suffering that Thomas experienced during the hour he lived after being shot, and $4,492 for the funeral costs.

However, Thomas' parents' attorney Trey Mustian expects the process of obtaining the money will be difficult due to the fact that Miller's earnings were seized after he was found liable in a separate nightclub shooting in Baton Rouge.
