LL Cool J burglar pleads not guilty

Los Angeles — The man accused of breaking into LL Cool J's home has pleaded not guilty to a felony burglary charge.

Jonathan E Kirby appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom on Tuesday and entered the plea.

Kirby was arrested after the actor-rapper subdued him in his home early on 22 August, breaking the 56-year-old's jaw, nose and ribs in the process. He faces 38 years to life in prison if convicted, due to his lengthy criminal history.

LL Cool J, whose real name is James Todd Smith, and his family were unharmed during the break-in, and nothing was apparently taken from their home. He stars in the CBS series NCIS: Los Angeles.

A district attorney's spokesperson says Kirby's bail was set at $1.1m.
