A rapper was aiming for redemption when he told police he'd committed a nearly 20-year-old shooting, but there are too many uncertainties to convict him of the killing that police matched with his confession, his lawyer said Tuesday.
Jury selection started Monday in the murder trial of a once-rising rapper who reopened a nearly 20-year-old case by suddenly telling police he was the gunman.
Opening statements are set for Tuesday in the murder trial of a once-rising rapper who reopened a nearly 20-year-old case by suddenly telling police he was the gunman.

Rapper G. Dep is facing a murder charge after walking into a police station to confess to a long-cold case, but he isn't regretful _ he's relieved, his lawyer says.
