A Philadelphia judge has halted the execution of Philly rapper Cool C for the second time
Philadelphia rap veteran Christopher Roney a.k.a. Cool C will live another day after a local judge granted him a second stay of execution. In December, Cool C, best known for the late 90s hit “Glamorous Life,” was granted an emergency stay of execution by Philly Judge L. Felipe Restrepo, Philadelphia’s NBC 10 reports; his first stay of execution was in 2006.
Cool C, 44, was convicted of the first degree murder of Officer Lauretha Vaird, when the 43 year old, nine year veteran responded to a bank robbery call in 1996. Roney, his mentor Steady B a.k.a. Warren McClone, and Philly rapper Mark Canty attempted to rob a PNC almost 19 years ago. Canty and McClone both received life in prison for their roles in the crime.
