Suspect in Nipsey Hussle murder pleads not guilty; bail set at $5 million

Eric Ronald Holder, who was arrested earlier this week in connection with the fatal shooting, entered his pleas to murder and attempted murder charges through his attorney during a brief hearing in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Holder, who was formally charged earlier in the day, appeared in court behind bars in a holding cell and spoke only in response to acknowledge his rights.

The 29-year-old defendant was represented in the high-profile case by Chris Darden, who as a Los Angeles County deputy district attorney in the 1990s unsuccessfully prosecuted former football star O.J. Simpson for murder.

Darden asked Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Teresa Sullivan to ban cameras from the courtroom, a request she denied. Darden declined to speak to reporters as he left the courtroom.

Hussle, whose real name was Ermias Asghedom, was shot multiple times on March 31 outside his Marathon Clothing store in south Los Angeles. Two other people were wounded in the gunfire.
