In conclusion to a very sad and disturbing case, a young man by the name of Daniel Petric who shot and killed his mother –over a dispire involving Halo 3– was convicted today of aggravated murder, attempted aggravated murder (of his father) and other charges. The kid also tried to frame his father for the murder by placing the gun in his hand.
The dispute in the Petric household started when the parents discovered the their son Daniel had purchased Halo 3, which they forbade him to do. His father rightfully confiscated the game from his son and placed it in his lock box.
Undeterred, Daniel went into picked the lock to his father’s lockbox where he took both the game and ALSO his father’s 9 mm handgun. He then proceeded to the living room where his parents were sitting, ordered them to close their eyes, and shot them both in the head.
Daniel’s defense attorney’s tried to argue their client suffered from ‘Video Game Addiction’, but the judge sentenced Daniel Patric to life.
