Suge Knight to remain in jail for next month

Fallen rap mogul Marion 'Suge' Knight will remain behind bars until his next court hearing in March (15) following his recent arrest on murder charges.

The Death Row Records founder has pleaded not guilty to counts of murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run after running over and killing his pal Terry Carter and leaving another man, actor Cle 'Bone' Sloan, injured as he attempted to drive away from an altercation on a movie set in Compton, California on 29 January (15).


His bond was initially set at $2 million , but a judge decided to revoke his bail after ruling he was too much of a flight risk.


Knight, who had to be treated for a blood clot last week (ends06Feb15), returned to court on Monday (09Feb15) for a bail review hearing, but learned he would be staying put at Los Angeles County Jail as both his attorney and the lead prosecutor requested more time to prepare for the case.


Knight's next court date has been set for 20 March (15).
