The state of Nevada continues Duane “Keefe D” Davis‘request to be released from prison before trial…because they insist Tupac ShakurThe alleged killer is just too dangerous.
For those who don’t know, Keefe D’s attorneys last week asked a judge to release him on his own recognizance before his trial, which is currently scheduled to begin in June… his bail not to exceed $100,000.
According to new documents obtained by TMZ, prosecutors say Keefe D’s request is absurd, and give several reasons why he should not walk free until his trial. For example, they claim he is, and has been, a former high-ranking member of the South Side Compton Crips has confessed several times of involvement in the Tupac murder over the years.
Prosecutors also allege Keefe made credible threats to witnesses while incarcerated.
They also continue to claim that they have mountains of evidence – including Keefe D’s own words – pointing to Keefe orchestrating Tupac’s murder in 1996… despite Keefe now distancing himself from those previous statements.
The state is asking the court to keep him behind bars until his trial date… and believes there are more than enough reasons to do so.
As we reported, Keefe D pleaded not guilty last month for the murder charge he’s currently facing… after appearing in court twice before with his lawyer apparently not showing up.
