    A northern New Jersey man accused of stabbing his housemate in the heart last week has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and weapons charges.

    The Record reports that Jose Wilbur Hernandez-Cerrito entered his plea Tuesday. The 23-year-old Englewood man remains jailed on $500,000 bail.

    Authorities say the stabbing occurred early Thursday while Hernandez-Cerrito and the 27-year-old victim were arguing at their West Palisade Avenue home. But they have not released further details about the dispute.

    The victim remains hospitalized, but is expected to recover from his injuries.
