Last week the star witness in New Orleans rapper C-Murder's murder trial recanted his testimony claiming he had been coerced by sheriff deputies.

Now a second witness has also recanted...

From Nola

Darnell Jordan, 36, testified in both of Miller's second-degree murder trials. During the 2009 retrial, he told the court Miller killed Steve Thomas, 16, inside of the now-closed Platinum Club in Harvey where Jordan worked as a bouncer.

But Jordan now says he was scared of Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office detectives who "tricked" him into identifying Miller, the younger brother of New Orleans rap mogul Percy "Master P" Miller.

"I am certain that Corey Miller did not shoot Steve Thomas," Jordan said in a hand-written letter filed with the 24th Judicial District Court Monday (July 2).

Kenneth Jordan, the other witness to identify Corey Miller as the shooting at the 2009 retrial, signed a similar affidavit that was filed with the court on June 26.

Kenneth Jordan, no relation to Darnell Jordan, accuses detectives and prosecutors of knowingly forcing him to make false statements by threatening him with criminal charges in another matter.
