LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com/AP) — A court has released a key piece of evidence in Marion “Suge” Knight’s murder case: video of the former rap music mogul running over two men with his pickup truck.
The Los Angeles court released the footage Friday in response to a request by The Associated Press. It also released an interview with the man who survived being hit by the pickup, along with photos of Knight after his late-January arrest.
Superior Court Judge Ronald Coen reviewed the materials before ruling Thursday that Knight should stand trial on murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run charges.
Knight has pleaded not guilty. His attorney has said the Death Row Records co-founder was fleeing an ambush when he hit the men.
Detectives recorded an hourlong interview with Cle “Bone” Sloan that likely will be played for jurors since Sloan now says he doesn’t remember the incident.
