A Grand Jury has reportedly indicted Nipsey Hussle’s alleged killer Eric Holder in a bid to prevent preliminary hearing.
According to TMZ, new charges have also been added.
The L.A. County D.A. had previously charged Eric with four counts, but the District attorney decided to have the case revisited by the Grand Jury.
The Grand Jury indicted Holder on the four previous crimes — premeditated murder, two counts of attempted murder and possession of a firearm by a felon — and also added two counts of assault with a firearm for the victims who survived.
The D.A.’s office declined to explain why they chose to forgo the preliminary hearing — where a judge must determine the probable cause of a crime in order to make the defendant stand trial — but it’s reportedly done sometimes if there’s a problem with the evidence.
Nipsey was shot and killed on March 31 in front of his Marathon Clothing store. Holder was arrested three days later on April 2 and has since pleaded not guilty.
