Duane “Keefe D” Davis, the man arrested for allegedly killing Tupac Shakur, is about to appear in court to face a murder charge in the nearly 30-year-old case.

Arraignment Delayed Due to Attorney Issues

The 60-year-old suspect, Keefe D, was initially scheduled to appear in Clark County Court in Vegas for his arraignment at 9 AM Thursday. However, due to attorney issues, his arraignment was delayed. The new date for the arraignment is November 2.

Two weeks ago, Keefe D appeared in court, but his hired lawyer was a no-show, leading to the rescheduling of his arraignment. This delay adds further anticipation to the court proceedings.

Charged with Murder and Gang Enhancement

Clark County D.A. Steve Wolfson confirmed in a press conference after the initial hearing that Keefe D is expected to plead not guilty to the charge of murder with the use of a deadly weapon in relation to the shooting of Tupac Shakur in 1996. In addition to the murder charge, Keefe D has also been hit with a gang enhancement, signaling the seriousness of the case.

Reopening the Case

The case involving Tupac Shakur’s murder was reopened 27 years after the crime due to Keefe D’s outspokenness in interviews, where he claimed involvement in the rapper’s killing. This renewed investigation aims to bring long-overdue justice in a case that has captivated the public’s attention for decades.
