L.A. judge refuses to reduce Suge Knight’s bail from $10 million
Former rap music mogul Marion "Suge" Knight suffered a tough legal blow on Friday when a Los Angeles judge refused to reduce his bail from $10 million in a murder case.
Turning down his attorney's request for a decrease in bail amount, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Ronald Coen declared that there was no change in circumstances warranting reduction in the former rapper's bail.
Knight has pleaded not guilty to murder and attempted murder charges that law enforcement officials filed against him after he ran over two men with his pickup truck near a Compton burger stand in January this year.

The judge also turned down rejected the Death Row Records co-founder's attorney's request to have Knight evaluated by a private doctor.
Knight is scheduled to reappear in court in the case on September 17, 2015.
