Johnny Depp has been pulled into a murder case.

At his Transcendence premiere in Los Angeles this week, the star was served with a subpoena in connection with court proceedings for Nancy Lekon, a limo driver who allegedly hit a pedestrian back in 2009, then dragging the woman for a mile and killing her.

Lekon has been charged with murder, and the trial is due to begin later this month.

She has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.

At the time of her arrest, Lekon told law enforcement officials that she was in a relationship with Depp and was on her way to rendezvous with him.

According to TMZ, her public defender now wants Depp to be called to court as a witness to demonstrate Lekon’s alleged insanity to the jury.

Gossip Cop will have updates.
