Murderer acted out killing as if in videogame, says defence

A laywer, here, is trying to get a murderer off the hook by telling the jury he lives in "a different world than you and I," the other place being that of videogames.

Andrew Reid Lackey admits to shooting, stabbing (over 70 times) and gouging out an eye from his 80-year-old victim.

The murder appears to have happened because Lackey was disturbed when robbing a house, but his defence is claiming he was acting out the event as if in a game. We're not so sure we fancy your chances there, Andrew.
