LOS ANGELES — A judge on Thursday set a July 7 trial date for a murder case against Marion “Suge” Knight that was filed after the former rap music mogul ran over two men earlier this year.

Knight has pleaded not guilty to murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run charges filed after he killed one man and seriously injured another with his pickup outside a Compton burger stand in January.

His attorney has said Knight was fleeing an ambush and requested bail for the Death Row Records co-founder be reduced from $10 million to $5 million, but the judge refused.
