A rapper formerly signed to Jay-Z's Roc-A-Fella Records has been sentenced to 10 years in prison in connection to a fatal 2009 stabbing in New York. Tru Life - real name Roberto Rosado, Jr. - was charged with gang assault and second-degree murder in June 2009 after Christopher Guerrero was killed and another man left seriously injured following an attack in a Manhattan apartment building.

He pleaded not guilty to the murder charge and was held by authorities without bail. Police were initially investigating the rapper's brother Marcus in relation to a shooting outside Pacha nightclub, and authorities believed the stabbing was in retaliation for the club incident.

Rosado, Jr. made a plea deal for second-degree murder and on Wednesday, February 16 he was handed a 10-year sentence, according to AllHipHop.com. The website reports that his brother was sentenced to 12 years in prison for his role in the murder and assault.
