Jury recommends death sentences in 'Xbox slayings' trial

After nearly three hours of deliberation Tuesday morning, a jury has recommended death for Troy Victorino, 29, and Jerone Hunter, 20, and life in prison for Michael Salas, 20. The three men have been convicted of six counts of first-degree murder. On August 6, 2004, Victorino, Hunter, and Salas, along with Robert Cannon (who would be tried separately, pending the withdrawal of his guilty plea) used aluminum baseball bats to beat to death six unsuspecting victims.

The story is too old to be commented.

Killing someone over a video game system? That's idiotic. These guys give gamers and the entire gaming industry an undeserved bad name. We don't need people like that in this world anyway. Good riddance.
