Prosecutors have recommended Holder’s bail be set at $5 million and he could face between 25 years to life in prison if convicted.
The attempted murder charges is as a result of alleged shootings of the two other victims, Kerry Lathan and Shermi Cervabta Villanueva.

Holder is in solitary confinement at a Los Angeles jail. The police think he could be a target and he will be kept from anyone who might want to seek revenge after he killed Hussle.
