Former Jay-z Protege Pleads Not Guilty To Stabbing

A rapper formerly signed to JAY-Z's Roc-A-Fella Records has pleaded not guilty to a murder charge, in connection to a fatal stabbing in New York.
Tru Life - real name Roberto Rosado, Jr. - was arrested on Tuesday (23Jun09) after 18 year old Christopher Guerrero was killed and another man left seriously injured following an attack in a Manhattan apartment building earlier this month (15Jun09).
Tru Life was charged with gang assault and second degree murder.
He has pleaded not guilty to the murder charge and is being held by authorities without bail.
Police were initially investigating the rapper's brother Marcus in relation to a recent shooting outside Pacha nightclub, and authorities believe the stabbing was in retaliation for the club incident.
Marcus Rosado turned himself into police on Wednesday (24Jun09) and is currently awaiting arraignment.
Tru Life, who landed a record deal with Jay-Z in 2005, is now facing life behind bars if he's found guilty on a charge of second degree murder.
