09 Feb Reality Show Contestant Convicted Of Murder; Could Get 50 Years
SFWeekly reports that former reality show TV contestant Jamal Rashead Trulove, aka “Milliown” of the VH1 reality show I Love New York 2, was found guilty of first-degree murder in San Francisco Superior Court this afternoon.
Trulove appeared on the show in 2007, where he was kicked off during the first episode after fighting with another contestant.
Trulove was on trial for the murder of Sea Kuka, who was shot dead at a public housing project in San Francisco’s Visitacion Valley neighborhood. Kuka was reportedly chasing Trulove’s brother through the projects when he ran into Trulove, knocking him down. Trulove then allegedly got up and shot Kuka in the back, and then in the head multiple times.
Trulove also faced one charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm. Following four days of deliberations, the jury found Trulove guilty on both counts — as well as a firearm enhancement to the murder charge.
Trulove faces a minimum sentence of 50 years in prison. He will return to court for sentencing on March 19. -Dr.FB
