On July 12, Alrashim Chambers pled not guilty to the 2010 murder of Victoria Carmen White, a transgender woman who was pursuing a career as a lingerie model.

The shooting, which took place late in the evening this past September at an apartment complex in Maplewood, N.J., allegedly occurred after Chambers, 24, and another man, Marquise Foster, 28, discovered that the victim was a transgender female, according to The Star Ledger.

White, who underwent a sex change a decade ago at the age of 19, died as a result of multiple gunshot wounds.

During the arraignment in Superior Court, Chambers pled not guilty to murder, bias intimidation, and weapons offenses. He did, however, plead guilty to hindering apprehension, which carries a sentence of up to five years in prison.

According to Essex County Assistant Prosecutor Eileen O'Connor, White and Chambers met at an Irvington nightclub on the night of the murder.
