13-Year-Old in Jail for Killing Sister Over VideoGame
A 13-year-old boy has been arrested by Oklahoma City police in connection of his 9-month-old sister’s death. According to the local news affiliate KOCO, the hospitable that treated the young girl before her death had became suspicious because the explanation of why she was injured in the first place, didn’t match that of the severe brain trauma she’d received.
The boy, Crystian Rivera told police that he was playing a videogame when his sister had fell and started to cry. He then admitted that when his character in his game was killed, he became frustrated and shook the baby until it stopped crying then went back to playing the game.
The boy has been booked by police and is currently in Oklahoma City Jail, though no charges have been filed yet.
While it’s horrible situation to see any child die, this has less to do with the actual game, and more to do with the kid being alone with a crying baby. While I’m certain the parents are extremely distraught over their child’s death, I just think they should be the ones sitting in a cell, over their boy.
