Frederick M. Brown/Getty ImagesThe girlfriend of Death Row Records founder Marion "Suge" Knight and a business associate of Knight's have been indicted in Los Angeles on charges relating to the alleged sale to TMZ of video of the fatal hit-and-run that resulted in murder and attempted murder charges against Knight.
According to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office, Toilin Kelly and Mark Blankenship have each been charged with conspiracy to violate a court order, conspiracy to obstruct justice and conspiracy to commit grand theft. The pair are accused of selling video of the hit-and-run incident to TMZ for $55,000, even though the video was evidence in Knight's case and was under a court protective order, prohibiting its release to the public.
A grand jury indicted the pair back in July but the indictments were unsealed in court in Los Angeles on Wednesday. Knight's girlfriend, Kelly, has pleaded not guilty in the case, according to the L.A. County D.A. She is scheduled to appear in court for a bail review hearing on September 19. Blankenship has not yet been arraigned in the case. Kelly and Blankenship face up to three years in jail if convicted.
Knight remains in jail awaiting trial on murder and attempted murder charges in connection with the hit-and-run incident on January 29, 2015 which killed Terry Carter and injured another man.
