Rap music mogul Marion “Suge” Knight is facing a murder charge in a hit-and-run death on January 29, 2015. The video below has now been released which shows why police have treated this as a murder case (warning the video is graphic). This is the type of video evidence that makes it very difficult for a defense attorney to penetrate the minds of a jury.
The hit-and-run incident that left one man dead and another hospitalized in Compton, California. Terry Carter, co-founder (along with Ice Cube) of Heavyweight Records and a friend of Knight, was the fatality. The second victim, filmmaker Cle Sloan, suffered a mangled foot and head injuries. Police say that Knight had argued with the men and followed them to a burger stand parking lot.
Last week, Knight, 49, was transported to a hospital after he told a judge that he was suffering from blindness and other complications. He is jailed without bail on murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run charges. He has fired his attorneys but from the looks of this video he should instead be hiring more.
