Nipsey Hussle’s alleged killer’s trial delayed for at least 3 months
Eric Holder, the man accused of killing West Coast rapper Nipsey Hussle, won’t face a trial for at least another three months due to the current coronavirus pandemic.
Holder appeared in court on Tuesday (December 1) where a judge stated that COVID-19 has caused the trial to be pushed back.
“I really don’t know how we can realistically expect to see this case go to trial anytime in the next 90 days or more,” Judge Robert J. Perry said.
“Mr. Holder, I don’t know what to tell you except that the court system and this county are plagued by a sickness that we call the COVID virus, and the court system has been very much impacted.”
The judge added that Holder has “the right to a speedy trial,” but he, and his attorneys, will have to return on January 21 to reassess how they will move forward.
It was back on March 31, 2019, when the 33-year-old rapper and community activist was murdered in Los Angeles, prompting a global storm of support.
