Suge Knight Facing Life in Prison

Suge Knight Could Serve Life in Prison for Last Week's Fatal Car Crash

Marion "Suge" Knight is looking at life in prison if he's convicted for a handful of felony counts, including last week's death of Terry Carter. The L.A. Times reports that the hip-hop mogul was charged with murder and attempted murder Monday afternoon, four days after he allegedly drove to a Compton film shoot for the forthcoming N.W.A. biopic, got in an argument, and struck two men with his truck. The official charges, which also included two hit-and-run counts, came the same day Knight's $2.2-million bail was nixed. An L.A. County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman told the Times that Knight's bail was revoked because he's a flight risk, as well as a three-strike candidate; officials were also worried he might intimidate witnesses.
