The man accused of shooting dead Nispey Hussle has pleaded not guilty to murder and has had his bail set at $5 million as it is revealed he is being represented by an O.J. Simpson prosecutor. Eric Holder Jr, 29, appeared in a Los Angeles Court dressed in his blue prison uniform yesterday alongside his defense attorney Chris Darden, who gained nationwide fame as part of the prosecution team at O.J. Simpson’s 1995 murder trial. Holder was arrested on Wednesday over the murder of the rapper outside his LA clothing store three days earlier. He has been reportedly held in solitary confinement in prison. Darden told the judge his client was pleading not guilty to charges of murder, two counts of attempted murder and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon. The judge set the bail at $5 million at the request of the District Attorney, a drop from the original $7 million set by LAPD.
