Another VH1 dating show cast member accused of murder

Months after a VH1 star was charged with murder and then killed himself, another cast member from one of its dating shows is being accused of killing someone.

I Love New York 2 cast member Jamal Trulove, aka Jamal Bryant, aka Milliown, is on trial in San Francisco “for the July 23, 2007, slaying of Seu Kuka, 28,” The San Francisco Chronicle reports. “Prosecutors say Trulove shot Kuka at the Sunnydale public housing project in Visitacion Valley as Kuka was chasing Trulove’s brother during a fight.”

Like the Deadliest Catch greenhorn accused of robbing banks, he was identified by viewers of the reality series, which started airing a few months after the murder. Trulove was one of five cast members selected by online voters, and was eliminated by Tiffany Pollard during the first episode after getting in a fight.

The best part of the paper’s story is this sentence: “During jury selection Wednesday, none of the prospective panel members said they had heard about the show.”
