The one time record industry mogul was charged with murder today (02-02-15) in the death of his friend, Terry Carter. Sources say a videotape will be a key piece of evidence.
the charges by the LA County DA come on the heels of the death of Carter who was killed by Knight last week in Compton after he was ran over by a truck driven by Knight.
Here’s additional info from TMZ:
In addition to murder, Suge was charged with attempted premeditated murder, hit and run resulting in death, and hit and run resulting in injury — all felonies.
As we previously reported, deputies obtained a video of the incident. Law enforcement sources say the video captures “a portion” of what went down, but authorities tell us it significantly strengthens the case against Suge.
Also, Knight’s $2.2 million dollar bail was revoked Monday just hours before he was expected to post bail.
“Homicide detectives asked the bail commissioner this morning and it was raised to ‘no bail’ because he is a flight risk,” LA Sheriff’s Deputy Mike Barraza told TheWrap.
If convicted, Suge Knight faces life.
