After a long delay, Nipsey Hussle’s alleged killer Eric R. Holder Jr.’s trial date is set for Jan. 5 2022. Holder’s lawyer, Aaron Jansen told Rolling Stone that he will argue that his client was “off his medication” the day of the shooting and experiencing “a substantial mental health issue.”
Holder pleaded not guilty to one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder for hitting bystanders Kerry Lathan and Shermi Villanueva, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, and one count of felony possession of a firearm in connection with the fatal shooting.
If convicted for these crimes Holder could face up to life in prison.
