Atlanta man killed game-console seller after a $280 deal went sourworld Updated: Aug 18, 2016 09:15 IST
A 22-year-old Atlanta man has been convicted of murder and sentenced to life plus five years in prison in connection with the 2014 killing of a man over a PlayStation 4 game console.
The Fulton County District Attorney’s Office says a jury yesterday convicted Nathaniel Vivian of murder, felony murder, armed robbery and other charges in the fatal shooting of 28-year-old Daniel Zeitz.
Prosecutors alleged that Vivian and Kayla Dixon, then 16, planned to rob Zeitz during a sale arranged on Craigslist.
At their meeting, Vivian tried to take the PlayStation from Zeitz without paying the USD 280 asking price. In a scuffle, prosecutors say, Dixon pulled out a handgun and fatally shot Zeitz.
Dixon pleaded guilty to murder in July and was sentenced to 40 years in prison.
