Nipsey alleged killer, Eric Holder, has been officially charged with murder. He pled not guilty and was given a bond of $5 million.


The L.A. County D.A. charged Eric Holder, the suspect in the killing of rapper Nipsey Hussle, with 1 count of murder, 2 counts of attempted murder and 1 count of possession of a firearm by a felon. If convicted, Holder could face life in prison.

Holder pled not guilty and his bond was set at $5 million in court on Thursday. He will reappear in court on May 10. Holder is represented by attorney Chris Darden, who had been part of the prosecution team in O.J. Simpson's double murder trial.


Holder faces attempted murder charges for allegedly shooting Kerry Lathan and Shermi Cervabta Villanueva. Kerry, who recently got out of jail, and Shermi, Kerri's nephew, had been with Nipsey Hussle at the rapper's clothing store in LA to get some new clothes.

Holder was arrested earlier this week and held in solitary confinement. Police feared he would be attacked while in custody as they believe he is now a target.

Police believe Holder is the person seen in surveillance video shooting Nipsey and his friends multiple times. The Crenshaw rapper died on Sunday afternoon from gunshots to his head and torso.
