Duane Keith Davis Pleads Not Guilty to Murder Charge in Tupac Shakur Case

Duane Keith Davis, or “Keffe D,” who has claimed publicly for years to have played a role in the murder of Tupac Shakur, pleaded not guilty to a murder charge for the killing in court on Thursday, Pashtana Usufzy and Julia Jacobs report for the New York Times. Davis was represented by a public defender in court this week. Shakur was killed in 1996 in a retaliatory attack after the beating of Davis’ nephew Orlando Anderson had been beaten by Shakur and others earlier the same night. Authorities said it was Davis’ own claims about the case in his public statements and his memoir, ‘Compton Street Legend,’ that reinvigorated it.
