Nipsey Hussle died of a tragic shooting at his Marathon Clothing store in Los Angeles in 2019. Eric Holder has been named as the man responsible for his murder. Eric Holder Jr. was previously convicted of murder in the first degree. His sentence hearing has now been postponed.
According to Fox 11 Los Angeles, Eric Holder, the man convicted of murdering Nipsey Hussle, was expected to be sentenced this month, but the hearing has been postponed. Holder will now face the consequences of his actions on November 3rd.
Holder is facing life in prison for "personally and intentionally" shooting a pistol on one of the victims, describing the killing as "cold-blooded" and "calculated," noting that Holder had "quite a bit of time for preparation and deliberation" before returning to the parking lot at Slauson Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard, where Nip was shot at least ten times.
Holder has been imprisoned since the 2019 killing, and his trial was repeatedly postponed until he was eventually convicted. The high-profile case was supposed to be heard in April 2020, but it was postponed until early 2021 due to COVID-19.
The murder prosecution in May 2021 was rescheduled. Two months later, the trial was postponed till December 2021 due to the retirement of the appointed judge and Holder's defense attorney, famous O.J. Simpson prosecutor Christopher Darden, who resigned after receiving threats to his family.
Holder pleaded not guilty to one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, and one count of felony firearms possession in the fatal shooting. Keep an eye on Thirsty.
