LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com/AP) — A Los Angeles judge has refused to lower bail for former rap music mogul Marion “Suge” Knight from $10 million in a murder case.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Ronald Coen said Friday there was no change in circumstances that would warrant reducing Knight’s bail. The Death Row Records co-founder has pleaded not guilty to murder and attempted murder charges filed after he ran over two men with his pickup truck outside a Compton burger stand in January.
His attorney has said Knight was ambushed and trying to escape.
The judge reviewed a video Knight’s lawyers submitted of the incident but said it provided no new details.
Coen also rejected a request by Knight’s attorneys to have him evaluated by a private doctor.
Knight had previously claimed he was suffering from a brain tumor, according to reports.
He is scheduled to return to court in the case Sept. 17.
