Duane “Keffe D” Davis made a brief appearance in court Tuesday, where a Nevada judge set a June 3 date for the murder trial related to the 1996 killing of Tupac Shakur.
According to The Associated Press, Davis, the only person ever charged in the drive-by shooting of the rap icon, spoke quietly to two court-appointed attorneys who were appointed to his case before he pleaded not guilty to murder Thursday, November 2.
Davis, 60, was indicted by a Clark County grand jury on one count of open murder with use of a deadly weapon with a gang enhancement in September, nearly 30 years after Tupac’s death. He has been detained since being arrested near his Las Vegas-area home on September 29.
Davis — who has admitted to being in the Cadillac Tupac occupied at the time of the shooting — is accused of orchestrating the “retaliatory shooting” that killed the rapper.
Tupac died on September 7, 1996, at the age of 25, six days after being shot while in a car near the Las Vegas Strip.
