According to TMZ, Suge Knight has struck a plea deal in the murder case of Terry Carter this afternoon (September 20).

Knight wore a large cross and orange jail attire during Thursday's sentencing, which draws to a close a almost four-year court saga over the fatal 2015 confrontation.

Former rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight was sentenced Thursday to 28 years in prison during a Los Angeles court hearing that came almost four years after he killed one man and injured another with his truck outside a Compton burger stand.

One of music's biggest names, Marion "Suge" Knight, has been sentenced to 28 years in prison for his role in the murder of a businessman during a gangland fight in Los Angeles.

Carter's family members, appearing in court for Knight's sentencing, expressed the pain, anger and heartbreak caused them by the fatal encounter outside a burger joint.

That breaks down to twenty-two years for the voluntary manslaughter charge, plus another six as part of California's three-strikes law.

While Carter's relatives said they hoped Knight's lengthy sentence will bring them peace, many had no kind words for the Death Row Records co-founder, whom they criticised for showing a complete lack of remorse. He also would receive an additional five years because the conviction was for a serious and violent felony and a year for the deadly weapon allegation.

"So when they gave me an attorney, he saw me two times in eight months and told me he went to the court and said he needed help from other attorneys". The incident that led to Carter's death occurred in 2015 during a confrontation between Suge and longtime rival, Cle "Bone" Sloan, a consultant on "Straight Outta Compton".

Knight, Dr. Dre and rapper the D.O.C. founded Death Row Records in the immediate aftermath of the break-up of N.W.A.

The probation violation stemmed from a scuffle involving Knight at a Las Vegas hotel in September 1996, hours before Shakur was shot to death while riding in a auto with Knight on the Las Vegas Strip.

The sentencing ended a four-year court saga that included frequent outbursts by Knight, who also collapsed in court during one appearance and shuffled his defence team 16 times. In return, two criminal cases were to be dropped against him.
