The change was requested by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department as Knight remains locked up on charges he ran over two men with his truck — killing one of them — outside a burger restaurant in Compton in January 2015.

The 50-year-old has pleaded not guilty in the case claiming he was the victim of an armed ambush.

His fiancee, calls the surprised decision "unfair" on Wednesday. "It's absolutely not fair," Toi-Lin Kelly told the Daily News. "His rights were taken away with no explanation."

She said the couple's 6-year-old son was allowed to visit Knight in jail shortly before Thanksgiving but now must stay away.
