11:25 a.m. PT – Holder’s attorney told us he was attacked by two men while in his cell on Tuesday, he was slashed in the head with what is believed to be a razor. Need 3 pins on the back of the head… Holder is said to have lost consciousness during the attack.
Nipsey Husslealleged killer, Eric Holderwas jumped by other inmates on his way to the courthouse…and the beating was so bad that he seemed to need stitches to close the wound.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ… Holder was waiting for a bus to the murder court on Tuesday when he jumped, causing the trial to be adjourned.
We were in the courtroom today, and Holder showed up with stitches running down the back of his head. Holder also has a slightly swollen left eye, and more stitches in his hair.
Interesting… Holder and his defense attorneys all wear face coverings, something they often haven’t done in the past.
The jury is also present in the courtroom, but so far no one has dealt with Holder’s injuries… the judge, prosecutor and defense are moving forward as if nothing had happened.
As we reported… the murder trial begins with cold detail about Nipsey’s shooting death, with Holder allegedly telling Nipsey, “You’ve passed” before killing the rapper.
