Former Roc-A-Fella artist Roberto "Tru Life" Rosado has reportedly been indicted on a murder charge and is being forced to remain behind bars in a New York prison.

The rapper was officially indicted days after allegedly turning himself into police last week.

Details on his arrest spread online last Thursday (June 25).

Roberto Guzman Rosado Jr. - better known as the rapper Tru Life - was arrested three days ago for the June 15 stabbings that left a second victim in critical condition. Rosado, 33, is jailed in Rikers Island on charges of murder, assault and weapons possession, police said. The stabbings occurred around 9:30 a.m. as part of an ongoing dispute that began earlier at the Club Pasha on W. 46th St., police sources said. (New York Daily News)

Hip-Hop personality Miss Info recently reported on the incident.

Tru Life, along with his brother and 2 other associates, have turned themselves into NYPD for questioning. They are suspects in last week's 9:30am stabbing of two men in an apartment lobby on the east side of Manhattan. A 30-year-old man is still being treated at Bellevue Hospital, but an 18-year-old man died from his injuries. (Miss Info TV)

Tru's brother has been associated with other high profile cases involving violence, including an altercation with Cam'ron.

According to investigators, the men retaliated against the earlier shooting of a man named Michael Slater. The man authorities say is a suspected drug dealer was shot in abdomen outside nightclub Pacha, and is listed in critical condition. The brother, whose name has also not been disclosed, was first introduced to hip-hop fans in 2007 courtesy of the punching incident between then rivals Tru Life and Cam'ron. According to various reports, the brother joined Tru Life in confronting Cam'ron outside of Club Stereo and after an escalation of words and some reports alleging the brother even threatened to shoot up the venue, Tru Life assaulted the Dipset founder with a single punch to the face.
