LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Marion "Suge" Knight will face trial on charges of murder and attempted murder in connection with an incident where the former Death Row Records label exec allegedly struck two men with his pickup truck in January, leaving one dead and one seriously injured.
According to the Associated Press, superior Court Judge Ronald Coen ruled that the trial would proceed after a hearing which included testimony from Cle Sloan, who was the man injured in alleged hit and run incident.
While Sloan declined to be too specific on the stand, stating that he had memory issues and did not want to be a 'snitch', prosecutors played a statement he provided to police that offered a detail account of the circumstances of the Jan. 29th incident.
Security camera footage played at the trial reportedly showed Sloan struggling with Knight through the window of Knights' vehicle before Knight put his truck into reverse, striking Sloan and then hitting him again, along with the decedent, Terry Carter.
Knight faces up to life in prison if convicted in the case and has previously felony convictions for armed robbery and assault with a firearm. – Staff Writers
