Former US rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight has pleaded no contest to a voluntary manslaughter charge over a hit-and-run incident in 2015.

Knight, co-founder of influential hip-hop label Death Row Records, entered the plea ahead of his scheduled trial on murder charges.

Knight, 53, had faced a murder charge and has been in jail since turning himself in shortly after the January 29, 2015, collision in which his red Ford Raptor pickup plowed into Terry Carter, 55, and 51-year-old Cle "Bone" Sloan, a technical adviser on the movie, who survived.

Knight was initially charged with murder and faced life in prison without parole - his sentence of 28 years stems from a plea deal struck with the District Attorney's office on Wednesday.

Two other criminal cases against Knight will be dismissed at sentencing.

But the new worldwide study followed 19,114 seniors for an average of 4.7 years. A trial of aspirin in the elderly was first called for in the early 1990s.

Knight will serve 22 years in prison on the voluntary manslaughter count, with an added six years for it being a third strike violation due to prior convictions.

Knight, who was out on bail in a robbery case at the time, fled the scene but was later arrested. His legal team later claimed that a hit man hired by Dr. Dre to kill Knight was at Tam's the day of the incident. Knight, who was at the wheel, was slightly wounded himself.

The vehicle is then seen zooming forward, back into camera range, running over Sloan a second time, and then running over a second man, Carter, a former rap music label owner.

Knight's attorneys had argued he was fleeing armed attackers. This media house does not correct any spelling or grammatical error within press releases and commentaries.
