Marion Knight, the one-time rap mogul better known as Suge, will be sentenced to 28 years in prison after pleading no contest Thursday to reduced charges in connection with a 2015 hit-and-run death tied to the film “Straight Outta Compton,” after a bizarre chain of events that delayed his murder trial.

Mr. Knight, 53, pleaded no contest to voluntary manslaughter in Los Angeles Superior Court after a plea deal was reached just days before jury selection was to begin. He had been charged with murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run as a result of a dispute on the set of a trailer for the popular N.W.A biopic, which included a depiction of Mr. Knight.
