A Nevada judge has set a trial date of Monday, June 3, 2024, in the 1996 murder of Tupac Shakur, The Associated Press reports. Duane “Keffe D” Davis, the man arrested by Las Vegas police in September and charged with Shakur’s murder and intent to promote, further, or assist a criminal gang. He has been appointed two attorneys by the court and pleaded not guilty.

Davis’ public defenders, Charles Cano and Robert Arroyo, have said they intend to seek his release on bail before the trial and noted that they have yet to examine what prosecutor Marc DiGiacomo has called “voluminous” evidence.

Prior to Davis’ arrest, he claimed in interviews and in his memoir that he was in the car from which Shakur was shot. He argues that another person fired the fatal shots. Davis is the last living person who was in the vehicle. He faces the possibility of life in prison.
