Music mogul Marion “Suge” Knight has been charged with murder and attempted murder following a fatal hit-and-run incident.
Suge Knight’s lawyer says it was an accident which happened as his client tried to escape an attack last week.
Prosecutors allege that the record producer intended to run over a friend and another man after an argument.
On February 2, a court commissioner revoked the $2 million bail after police said the defendant had a violent past and could intimidate witnesses.
Suge Knight is scheduled to appear in court in Compton, Los Angeles, on February 3, facing four charges under his real name Marion Hugh Knight.
His friend, Terry Carter, 55, was killed and Cle “Bone” Sloan, 51, injured in the incident in Compton, in Los Angeles County.
Suge Knight founded Death Row Records in the 1990s, but later declared bankruptcy and the company was sold at auction.
He helped launch the careers of artists including Dr. Dre, Tupac Shakur and Snoop Dogg.
Suge Knight has previously been convicted of armed robbery and assault with a gun.
