Suge Knight in hospital after arrest for murder

Former US rap music mogul Marion "Suge" Knight has been taken to hospital shortly after pleading not guilty to murder and attempted murder in court.

The record producer complained of chest pains after turning himself in to police in Los Angeles.

The charges relate to a fatal hit-and-run incident in which one man was killed and another injured.

Mr Knight's lawyer said it was an accident, which happened as his client was trying to escape an attack.

Prosecutors allege that the hip-hop mogul intended to run over a friend and another man after an argument.
