A man suspected of killing Grammy-nominated rapper and community advocate Nipsey Hussle was charged with murder, the Los Angeles County District Attorneys Office said. The 29-year-old appeared in court with his attorney Christopher Darden, who is a famous former prosecutor from the OJ Simpson trial in the 1990s.
If convicted as charged, he faces a possible maximum sentence of life in state prison. The two victims are identified in the criminal complaint as Kerry Lathan and Shermi Cervabta Villanueva.
Prosecutors, however, dismissed his claim, arguing that Holder's photo had already been widely disseminated before his court appearance.
During the hearing, Sullivan lowered Holder's bail from $7 million to $5 million and ordered him back in court on May 10, according to the News.
Pentagon says expects to resolve row with Turkey over S-400
Reuters reported last week that Washington was exploring whether it could remove Turkey from the production of the F-35. Which is why former US ambassador to Turkey Eric Edelman sees Erdogan betting on Washington backing down.
Asghedom received a phone call Sunday informing him that his younger brother, whose real name was Ermias Asghedom, had been shot outside a clothing store in Los Angeles.
J Roc said he would look out for Hussle's wife, Lauren London, and two children moving forward.
Holder was taken into custody on Tuesday in the Los Angeles suburb of Bellflower after a caller reported seeing the man police had named as a suspect. Hussle pleaded not guilty Thursday to murder and attempted murder charges.
Nipsey Hussle grew up in south LA and was a member of the Rollin' 60s gang as a teenager. He ignored the red lights as he raced down Slauson Avenue - the South Los Angeles street that he and Nips were working to uplift.
