Cool C and fellow Philadelphia rapper Steady B, who collectively also performed as a rap group called C.E.B. (Countin' Endless Bank), were involved in the murder of a police officer named Lauretha Vaird on January 2nd, 1996 in a bank robbery attempt. B (Warren McGlone) is serving a life sentence for his role in the crime, but C has been on death row since late 1996. Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell gave him a stay of execution in 2006 pending the resolution of all legal issues related to his case, but as of this weekend there is no longer any impediment to his execution.
