Death Row co-founder,Suge Knight has just been charged with premeditated murder in the death of his friend. Knight, 49, is accused of using his pickup truck to intentionally run over two men at a burger stand in Compton Thursday afternoon. One of the men was killed.Knight allegedly had an argument with men. But he claims through his attorney that he struck the two men accidentally as he tried top get away from two other men who were threatening him.

However, witnesses claimed he intentionally ran over them.Also, forces reportedly obtained a video of the incident. Law enforcement sources say the video captures "a portion" of what went down.

In addition to murder, Suge was charged with attempted murder, hit and run resulting in death, and hit and run resulting in injury -- all felonies.

He's set to be arraigned on Tuesday. He is being held at the Men's Central Jail in downtown Los Angeles without bail.He was initially granted $2m bail but the judge cancelled it due to several factors including his flight risk status, and fears he may intimidate the witnesses who saw what went down.

If convicted, Suge faces life.
