Request to Reduce Suge Knight’s Bail Denied

     LOS ANGELES (CN) – A judge on Friday denied Suge Knight’s request to reduce bail from $10 million in his case for murder and attempted murder.
     Knight, whose real name is Marion Hugh Knight Jr., is accused of killing his friend Terry Carter, 55, and critically injuring film technician Cle Denyale “Bone” Sloan after allegedly running over the two men at the Tam’s Burgers restaurant in Compton on Jan 29.
     The incident allegedly occurred after Knight showed up uninvited to a promotional shoot for the upcoming movie “Straight Outta Compton.”
     Rappers Dr. Dre and Ice Cube were in the area filming a promo for the movie, a fictional biopic about N.W.A., the rap group that made them famous.
     Prosecutors say Knight, 49, ran over the two men with his pickup after an altercation with Sloan.
     Superior Court Judge Ronald Coen reduced bail to $10 million in April, finding the original bond of $25 million excessive.
     If convicted, Knight faces life in prison.
