Mortal Kombat Killers Sentenced

1 min read

2 1You may remember psychopath Lamar Roberts and his equally loony teenage girlfriend, Heather Trujillo. The pair gained notoriety in 2007 when they killed 7 year old Zoe Garcia with a series of punches kicks and throws, allegedly in re-enactment of the Mortal Kombat videogames. They also gained notoriety for demonstrating to the world exactly how not to babysit.

Fans of justice will be happy to know that Roberts has been sentenced to 36 years in prison after pleading guilty to recklessly or knowingly causing the death of Garcia. If any anecdotes about the fate of child killers in prison are true, he’s in for a rough ride.

Trujillo – a minor – pleaded guilty to negligence and will serve a paltry 6 years in a youth offender program.

Oh yeah…any of you with “FINISH HER” jokes in your heads are going to hell.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
