The trial for the man allegedly responsible for killing Nipsey Hussle, Eric Holder, is delayed once again.

As reported on The Shade Room, Holder refused to leave his jail cell today (May 11) for a court hearing. Therefore, his trial will get pushed back, and he’ll receive a new lawyer. 

Initially, Christopher Darden, the same attorney from O.J. Simpson’s trial, represented Holder. Darden received a lot of backlash from the public, so he ended up stepping down. Holder’s new lawyer is reportedly Aaron Jansen, who replaced Lowynn Young. 

Holder’s trial was pushed back several times last year due to COVID-19. Another reason for a delay is the previous judge on the case retired, according to HNHH. Honorable Clay Jacke is the new judge. Due to the switch, the trial will be delayed a few more months. 

Nipsey was gunned down outside of his Marathon clothing store in California on March 31, 2019. Prosecutors say Holder shot Hussle in the head and torso. On May 9, 2019, a grand jury indicted Holder on one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder and assault with a firearm, and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon. If convicted, he faces life in state prison.
