Marion "Suge" Knight appears for a hearing at the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center March 9, 2015 in Los Angeles, California. 

Marion "Suge" Knight is scheduled to return to court Tuesday morning for a hearing in which prosecutors will lay out some of their evidence to support a robbery case filed against the former rap music mogul.

Knight's lawyers have requested a delay in the hearing, but Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Ronald Coen has previously told them he intends to proceed with the hearing.

Knight is charged with robbery after a celebrity photographer accused him and comedian Katt Williams of taking her camera in Beverly Hills in September. The incident occurred days after the 50-year-old Knight was wounded in a nightclub shooting.

The Death Row Records co-founder is also charged in a separate murder case. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges. Williams has also pleaded not guilty.
