Suge Knight was in court to plead not guilty to attempted murder and murder ... and will remain behind bars without bail.
Suge entered his plea in L.A. County Superior Court Tuesday morning. He also pled not guilty to two counts of hit and run. He's accused of running over actor Cle "Bone" Sloan and his friend Terry Carter ... who was killed.
Interestingly, the judge recused himself from the case because he says he's represented the victims as an attorney in the past.
The judge said Knight must remain in custody without bail ... at least until a hearing which is scheduled for Feb. 9.
