Kid Kills Parent Over 'Halo 3'
Petric's mother was killed, but his father survived and was on hand to see his son's insanity plea rejected. Petric now faces a possibility of life in prison without parole, at the young age of 17.
We're sure some jerk out there will try to lay blame at the feet of the game itself, as someone always does. But Petric is clearly a disturbed young man. After committing the grisly crime, he fled the scene, taking only his copy of 'Halo 3.' The item could have been anything, a treasured baseball card, a movie. What drove Petric to kill was not desensitization, or even addiction, but obsession. And in that respect 'Tetris,' may be the most dangerous game out there. [From: AOL News]
