Clark, 33, was arrested on Dec. 1 on a murder charge. Letitia Quinones, his attorney, has said Clark has a “valid and meritorious claim for self-defence.”
Takeoff, 28, was shot in the head during a “lucrative game of dice” as more than 30 people left a private party at a bowling center on November 1. Houston investigators have said that Takeoff was not “actively involved” and was “an innocent bystander.”
