2Pac Murder Suspect Keefe D Trial Delayed For Months

2Pac‘s murder suspect Keefe D is going to have to wait a bit longer to fight for his proclaimed innocence in court, as the trial has now been delayed by months.

According to a report from ABC 13 in Las Vegas on Tuesday (February 20), it was actually the former gang member’s new attorney Carl “E.G.” Arnold who asked for the push as argued that he needed more time to go over the discovery materials related to the case.

Keefe D is now scheduled to go to trial on November 4, five months after its original start date of June 3.

In a hearing on Tuesday, Arnold told the media he was confident his client would make bail, and that he will beat the case come trial.

“He’s upbeat that he can possibly get out of here real soon,” Arnold said. “The state has to provide evidence of a gun, of a car, and, most importantly, whether Mr. Davis was even in Las Vegas at the time.”

Keefe D swapped his public defenders out for Arnold last month. Records show that he is a Howard University School of Law graduate who has been named to the National Trial Lawyers Top 100.

As for the aforementioned bail, the judge overseeing the trial set a $750,000 cash bail in early January. What’s more, the judge ruled that the accused killer of the West Coast Hip Hop legend can serve house arrest if he’s able to come up with the cash — provided he wears an ankle monitor if he does so.

Keefe D’s  then-court-appointed attorneys initially petitioned the court for leniency on January 2 and claimed that he “poses no danger” due to his ill health.

They also said that he will not flee before the trial and were hoping that the judge sets a bail no higher than $100,000 out of respect for his tenuous financial situation.

They said that “they believe” their client could post a bail of $100,000.

Though Nevada is a capital punishment state, prosecutors will not be seeking the death penalty if convicted.
