Murder Trial For Suge Knight Finally Moves Forward

Suddenly, the vehicle backs up, knocking Sloan to the ground.

Knight, who had been charged with murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run and was facing a life sentence if convicted, struck a deal with prosecutors just days before jury selection was due to begin for his 1 October trial.

One of the victims, Terry Carter, died of his injuries while the other, Cle "Bone" Sloan, was seriously injured.

Marion "Suge" Knight (L), with attorney Albert DeBlanc, appears in Los Angeles Superior Court for a fatal 2015 hit-and-run, in Los Angeles, California, U.S., September 20, 2018.

The deadly confrontation occurred on January 29, 2015, outside a hamburger stand in the Los Angeles suburb of Compton, following a heated argument on the set of a commercial for the film "Straight Outta Compton".

At the time, Knight claimed he was attempting to flee to safety after being attacked by two crew members.

Knight is facing a 28-year state prison term when he is sentenced in a downtown Los Angeles courtroom October 4 by Superior Court Judge Ronald S. Coen.

As part of the agreement, the murder charges against Knight, 53, will be dismissed by prosecutors, along with separate criminal cases charging him with robbery and making criminal threats.

The defense previously argued Knight was defending himself because Sloan had a gun.

During Thursday's hearing, Knight answered Judge Ronald Coen's questions, loudly and quickly saying "no contest" when the judge asked for his plea.

He helped launch some of rap's biggest acts, including Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur.

Knight served five years in prison for assault and federal weapons violations and, after his release in 2001, spent another 10 months behind bars for violating parole by hitting a Hollywood nightclub valet.

He was sentenced in February 1997 to prison for violating terms of that probation by taking part in a fight at a Las Vegas hotel hours before Shakur was fatally wounded in a drive-by attack as he rode in Knight's vehicle just east of the Las Vegas Strip. Both rap murders remain unsolved.
