Judge Denies Suge Knight’s Request To Drop Murder Charges

A judge recently denied that the murder charges against Suge Knight be dropped and ruled that he should stand trial for murder, Billboard reports.

The former Death Row CEO will be tried despite a key witness refusing to identify Knight as the man who fatally ran over Terry Carter in court at a preliminary hearing.

“I will not be used to send Suge Knight to prison,” Cle “Bone” Sloan said at a preliminary hearing on Apr.13th.

Knight’s lawyer Thomas Mesereau suggested that Sloan’s testimony be thrown out because he showed that he wasn’t credible when he said Knight ran him and another man over in January but refused to point him out in court. The judge, Stephen A. Marcus, rejected this call because Sloan never said it wasn’t Knight.

The 50-year-old is currently being held on $10 million bail.
