UPDATE October 4, 2018:

A judge on Thursday sentenced former rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight to 28 years in prison for the 2015 death of man he ran over outside a Compton burger stand, KTLA reports.

Voluntary manslaughter would normally bring a sentence of 11 years in prison, but Knight's conviction along with his previous felonies triggers California's three strikes law. That doubles the manslaughter sentence and adds an extra six years.
