The date is set for Louisiana’s state court to start cutting through the preliminary red tape in C-Murder’s second trial.

The Associated Press reports that State Judge Martha Sassone set a January 12 hearing in the second-degree murder case of the 37-year-old rapper. Sassone who lost her bid for re-election will not be the judge at the time of the hearing. Ellen Kovach, who defeated Sassone says that she will disqualify herself from judging the case, however.

C-Murder whose real name is Corey Miller was convicted in 2003, charged with the murder of 16-year-old Steve Thomas on January 12, 2002. After a series of hearings he was granted a second trial.
If convicted in the new trial Murder can face mandatory life in prison.
