Nearly two years after Suge Knight was arrested and charged for murder after a fatal hit-and-run that left one man dead and another injured, the parties who allegedly sold the video evidence to TMZ have been indicted for the crime.
According to Variety, Knight’s girlfriend, Toilin Kelly, and his business partner, Mark Blankenship, have been charged and indicted for allegedly selling the video of the fatal hit-and-run to TMZ for $55,000. Apparently, the two spent nearly 30 days making a deal with TMZ for surveillance video. However, prosecutors say that the video was to be used as evidence in the murder case, and its release was prohibited.
Last week, Kelly pleaded not guilty to counts of conspiracy to obstruct justice, conspiracy to violate a court order, and conspiracy to commit grand theft, just nearly two months after the initial indictment. As for Blankenship, he is still awaiting arraignment for the same charges, according to the publication.
If convicted, the two face up to three years in prison.
