Geoffrey Tracy is on trial for second-degree attempted murder and first-degree assault.

According to the New York Post, Geoffrey Tracy has pled not guilty to second-degree attempted murder and first-degree assault, turning down a plea deal of 20 years in prison. The 25-year-old bodybuilder admitted in court to stabbing his 50-year-old roommate, Gregory Kanczes 16 times.

The stabbing took place last month. Tracy was flown into New York from California by a gay strip club owner who arranged for Tracy to stay with Kanczes. Tracy claimed that Kanczes blocked him from leaving the apartment after coming onto him.

"The guy tried to make moves on me," Tracy told police. "I told him no, then he said he'd shoot me so I had to defend myself. I had a knife to him, he went for the gun. I filmed myself on my iPhone saying I didn't want to kill him. He had a gun. I had to kill him."

Tracy stabbed Kanczes in the neck, chest, and shoulder. Afterward, he "took a vape of THC" and discarded the knife in a dumpster. Tracy later admitted that he didn't see a gun.

"He's so muscular and Greg's not," said Kanczes' ex-boyfriend, Norman La Chance. "You could have thrown him and ran out the door. You don't stab somebody."

Tracy is currently free on a $500,000 bond, and he recently posted to Instagram for the first time since the stabbing took place.
