Marion “Suge” Knight has officially been charged with murder in the hit and run case, leaving one dead and two injured, that he was involved in on Thursday.
The reign of terror for the feared Death Rowe label owner and business man has come to a halt.
Despite being shot multiple times, which left him gravely injured and near death last September, Knight couldn’t seem to put his criminal activities behind him.
As we reported, following an argument involving three other men on the “Straight Outta Compton” movie set, Knight drove his truck over one of the men who later died from his injuries.
At the time of the report, it was suggested that the victim, Terry Carter, hadn’t been the initial target and was a friend of Knight. However, its since been reported that Knight may have intentionally ran Carter over, not once, but twice!
