Music mogul faces murder rap

Marion 'Suge' Knight will stand trial on murder and attempted-murder charges after the former rap music mogul struck two men with his truck in January, killing one and injuring the other.

Superior Court Judge Ronald Coen made the ruling after concluding a hearing that focused heavily on evidence from Cle 'Bone' Sloan, who was hit outside a Compton burger stand. The judge also reduced bail from $25m (€23m) to $10m.

Knight (49) was a key player in gangster rap in the '90s. His label once listed Dr Dre, Tupac Shakur and Snoop Dogg among its artists.
