15th Defence Lawyer in Suge Knight's Murder Case Leaves

15th Defence Lawyer in Suge Knight's Murder Case Leaves

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Marion “Suge” Knight has lost another defence lawyer — his 15th — and the three-year wait for his murder trial to start will grow even longer.

Judge Ronald S. Coen released attorney Dominique Banos on Friday, citing a conflict of interest.

Banos says she believes she is a target in the witness-tampering investigation that led to the indictment and removal of two of Knight’s lawyers. She denies any wrongdoing.

The judge appointed a 16th attorney, Robert DeBlanc. But Knight said he has already privately hired yet another, without giving his name.

The Death Row Records co-founder has pleaded not guilty to murder and attempted murder for running over two men outside a Compton burger stand in 2015.

Coen scrapped an April 9 trial date and scheduled another hearing in May.
