“This is a case about the heat of passion. The provocative act in this case was that Nipsey Hussle made an accusation against Mr. Holder that he was a snitch.” Jansen went on to say the first-degree charge for premeditated murder should instead be “voluntary manslaughter.”
Eric is charged with killing Nipsey on March 31, 2019. A grand jury indicted Eric on May 9, 2019. He’s charged with one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder, and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon.
