Suge Knight

Suge Knight has been officially charged with murder and attempted murder, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced this week, reports USA Today.

The former hip-hop mogul will be arraigned in the Los Angeles County Superior Court on Tuesday (Feb. 3) in Compton.

In addition to the murder charges, a press release from the District Attorney's office said Knight has also been charged with two counts of hit-and-run "with an allegation that he committed a serious and violent felony while out on bail in another pending case."

If convicted, he faces life in prison.

Suge is currently being held without bail.

He's accused of of killing Terry Carter and injuring another, Cle "Bone" Sloan, when he hit them with his pickup truck last week, near a film set in Compton and then fled the scene.
