*There’s been action related to the Suge Knight murder trail that’s slogging it’s way through the LA county superior court system.

The news isn’t about Knight himself, per se, but about his Fiancée, Toi-Lin Kelly, who was sentenced to three years in jail on Friday for a probation violation connected to Knight.

“Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Douglas Sortino ruled that Toi-Lin Kelly, 37, helped Knight violate a court order limiting his jailhouse phone communications by aiding him in arranging interviews with the producers of a BET documentary about Death Row Records, the record label he founded in 1988,” states an LA Times report. “Sortino also found that she was indirectly communicating with Knight through a private investigator, violating the terms of probation he granted her in October.”

Kelly’s original probation order stemmed from her guilty plea to a count of conspiracy to violate a court order in 2017 after she and her business partner sold footage of Knight’s 2015 hit-and-run. That incident is the basis for Knight’s initial homicide charge, after Knight struck both Terry Carter and Cle “Bone” Sloan with his truck in January of 2015. Carter died from his injuries, while Sloan survived but also sustained injuries.

Last year, prosecutors accused Kelly of selling surveillance video related to Knight’s murder trial to TMZ (for $55,000). This came after a judge ruled that the recording could not be shared with the media.

In October, Kelly pleaded no contest to conspiring to violate a court order. She had to pay the $55,000 she was paid by TMZ in restitution and was ordered to perform 100 hours of community service. She was also given five years probation.

In court on Friday, she cried while reading a letter that called her arrests a “humbling” and “humiliating” experience.

Kelly also asked Judge Sortino to consider her and Knight’s 8-year-old son. If Kelly is incarcerated the child would be left with both parents in prison.

Meanwhile, in addition to Kelly’s probation charge and subsequent three-year sentencing, Complex reminds that “Straight Outta Compton” director F. Gary Gray was previously accused of lying under oath in relation to Knight’s murder case do to fear for his life. That accusation came after a grand jury indicted Knight for sending death threats to Gray via text message
