Judge Refuses to Dismiss Murder Case Against Marion “Suge” Knight

The murder case involves a fatal hit-and-run crash outside a Compton burger stand in January

A judge has refused to dismiss a murder case filed against former rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephen Marcus rejected a motion by Knight's attorney to dismiss the case. His attorney wanted the case thrown out because a key witness refused to identify the Death Row Records co-founder as the person who ran him over.

Knight's attorney Thomas Mesereau also argued that the 50-year-old was fleeing an attack by a key prosecution witness, Cle "Bone" Sloan, and the case should be thrown out.

Marcus disagreed, saying there was no dispute that Knight was behind the wheel of his pickup when he ran over Sloan and another man outside a Compton burger stand in late January.

Knight is currently being held on $10 million bail.
