UPDATE: Suge has plead NOT guilty to murder, attempted murder and other charges in a Compton court Tuesday morning. Knight's attorney, James Blatt, says the incident is an unfortunate accident that occurred when the former rap mogul attempted to escape an assault. We'll keep you updated as the case evolves.
We hope justice is served for whatever the truth is in this case.
On Monday, Suge Knight was officially charged with MURDER in the January 30 death of his friend, Terry Carter. In addition to the murder charge, the former rap mogul faces one count of attempted murder for running over Cle Sloan, who thankfully survived the attack.

All in all, the case looks awful for Suge. Not only did the presiding judge revoke his $2 million bail, but this case is Knight's "third strike," which means he has a lot of prior convictions.
It's obvious the 49-year-old has a disturbing history of violence — from domestic violence to a slough of assault and battery charges, the rapper is obviously a DANGEROUS man. You can check out his unbelievable rap sheet HERE!
If convicted of the hit-and-run, Suge could face life in prison.
