Rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight and comedian Katt Williams were ordered to stand trial on robbery charges Tuesday for allegedly stealing a camera from a female photographer in Beverly Hills in 2014.

The incident allegedly occurred outside a studio on Sept. 5. The camera was allegedly stolen from an independent celebrity photographer, identified as Leslie Redden.

Knight is also charged with felony criminal threats for comments he made to Redden. Knight's attorney denies that he was involved.

Both men are set to be arraigned on Oct. 27.

Knight, who founded Death Row Records, is also scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 11 for a pretrial hearing in connection with his pending murder case. He's accused of running over two men in Compton, killing Terry Carter and injuring Cle "Bone" Sloan.
