Man kills baby over a videogame, pleads guilty

0

A man has pleaded guilty to killing an 18-day-old baby so that he could finish his videogame in peace. On October 26, 2007, Rene Edward Barrios was trusted to look after his girlfriend's newborn baby while it was sleeping. Leaving it in the next room, Barrios was playing an unspecified game when the baby started to cry. 

Enraged by the noise, the man went into the next room, where he violently shook the child and hit it in the head. With the baby subdued, Barrios then went to finish his videogame for the next ten minutes, coming back to check on the child only to find it blue and unconscious. The baby died later in hospital and Barrios was arrested there and then. He has officially been found guilty of manslaughter and faces between 10.5 and 21 years of prison. 

Having lived with far younger siblings, one can sympathize with the agony of having a child's screaming ruin your gaming. But Jesus Christ on a ferris wheel, it's depressing to think that people are capable of this.
