LOS ANGELES (AP) — A judge has restricted rap mogul Marion “Suge” Knight’s access to phone calls and visitors at the request of sheriff’s investigators.

Court records show Los Angeles Superior Court Judge William C. Ryan on Friday cut Knight’s access to phone calls and non-attorney visitors. The order was issued at the request of a sheriff’s detective investigating Knight’s murder case, in which he is charged with running over two men, killing one.

Details about what prompted the order to restrict Knight’s access to visitors are under seal. Knight’s attorney, Thaddeus Culpepper, did not immediately return phone and email messages seeking comment.

Knight has pleaded not guilty and remains jailed on $10 million bail since his January 2015 arrest. He had steadily gained privileges, including visits from relatives and spiritual advisers.

The former Death Row CEO stands accused of killing Terry Carter and injuring Cle “Bone” Sloan, after hitting both men with his pickup truck in the parking lot of Tam’s burgers back in April 2015.
