Nipsey Hussle's Killer Eric Holder Has His "Kill Zone" Motion Denied By Judge

Among the six charges that Nipsey Hussle's alleged killer Eric Holder pleaded not guilty to were two charges of attempted murder.

Those charges apply to the two people who were injured in the blazing guns attack which killed Nipsey.

Holder's lawyers tried to get the attempted murder charges thrown out by arguing that the "kill zone theory" did not apply to their client

The kill zone theory is defined as such:

“[T]he kill zone theory for establishing the specific intent to kill required for conviction of attempted murder may properly be applied only when a jury concludes: (1) the circumstances of the defendant’s attack on a primary target, including the type and extent of force the defendant used, are such that the only reasonable inference is that the defendant intended to create a zone of fatal harm—that is, an area in which the defendant intended to kill everyone present to ensure the primary target’s death—around the primary target; and (2) the alleged attempted murder victim who was not the primary target was located within that zone of harm. Taken together, such evidence will support a finding that the defendant harbored the requisite specific intent to kill both the primary target and everyone within the zone of fatal harm.

Today, Judge Robert J. Perry rejected the motion.

TSR STAFF: Christina C! @cdelafresh ___ #TSRExclusive: A judge has denied a motion by Eric Holder, the man accused of killing #NipseyHussle, to dismiss related attempted murder charges in the case. ___ It happened this morning at a Los Angeles courthouse where Holder’s lawyers argued the “kill zone theory” did not apply to the attempted murder charges related to the two other victims Holder allegedly shot and asked to dismiss those two charges in the case. ___ Judge Robert J. Perry sided with the prosecution on this one. “I’m unwilling to do that,” Perry said. The prosecution believes that Holder is in fact guilty of attempted murder because of that same “kill zone theory,” meaning he targeted one victim, but due to his mode of attack (two firearms in this case), he had intent to kill everyone in a particular zone, especially given that his initial target was not moving. ___ Following today’s hearing, Holder’s case will now move forward to trial in February. This story is developing.
