The man accused of murder in connection with the gang feud slaying of rapper Tupac Shakur a quarter of a century ago was back in a US court Thursday.
Duane “Keefe D” Davis, 60, was charged last month over the killing, despite not being the man wielding the weapon in Las Vegas in 1996.
Thursday’s hearing was intended to be an arraignment after the original hearing was delayed.
But defense attorney Ross Goodman asked for the case to be postponed again, saying that although he was there to represent Davis, he had not been formally hired.
“I’m going to give you two weeks, but in two weeks we’ve got to get this case moving,” District Judge Tierra Jones told him.
At the arraignment, Davis will be expected to enter a plea to the charge of murder with a deadly weapon with the intent to promote, further or assist a criminal gang.
