An ex-felon pleaded not guilty today to a charge that he murdered a man in East Oakland in November 2008. Curtis Smith, 34, is accused of fatally shooting 30-year-old Marlan Campbell in the 9300 block of International Boulevard on Nov. 21, 2008, an incident that wasn’t solved until recently.

In addition to murder, Smith is accused of being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm, as prosecutors allege that Smith has two prior convictions for possession for sale of cocaine base, one in 1999 and one in 2006. The prior convictions could increase Smith’s state prison sentence if he’s found guilty of murdering Campbell. Smith is scheduled to return to Alameda County Superior Court on April 7 for his preliminary hearing, which will determine if there’s enough evidence to order him to stand trial.

  • I feel he deserve the death penalty cause he lied the first time i believe that the law should arrest Lil giz ,mone ,there mother cause they where assessory and the fact the mother move out the next day is even more suspect when i know my brother was there with Lil giz and his brother mone were curtis was visiting and they left my brother out there to die so i believe they should be charged with the crime as well i know if they ate still free that law dont work i dont know if i ran into one of them what will happen cause they are just as much at fault even tasha who told him he wasnt going to do nothing so i say fuck them and they whole family

  • There is something that cant be handle by the law but truth be told that what happened to marlan campbell was planned and the funny thimg is that giz and mone are still free and they where assessory and lied to police the day of the murder i know that the family of marlan campbell didnt receive the call for court or a homicide to come and let us know are to give my mother justice and i feel that he is going to use the old fight as a plea for sympathy when my brother wasn’t armed shoot in cold blood we have to think about it everyday and if he was bullying him why come and pick him put from my house that really sounds funny and fake and im just as mad with the law enforcement when not told of the court date
