LOS ANGELES (AP) — Death Row Records founder Suge Knight has appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom and rescheduled a hearing in his felony robbery case.

Knight made a brief appearance on Tuesday, a day before he was set to attend a scheduling conference on a charge involving the theft of a camera in September.

Superior Court Commissioner Mark Zukman ordered Knight to return to court on Jan. 27.

Knight is accused along with comedian Katt Williams of stealing the camera from a photographer in Beverly Hills earlier this year.

Knight has pleaded not guilty. Williams is due in court for arraignment Wednesday.

Knight was shot and wounded in a California nightclub about a week and a half before the theft.

Death Row Records was one of rap's leading labels in the 1990s.
