Two teenagers from Jamestown, Colorado have been arrested after killing seven year old Zoe Garcia using moves from fighting game Mortal Kombat says prosecutors. Heather Trujillo aged 16, and Lamar Roberts aged 17, “punched, kicked and body-slammed” Trujillo’s half sister until she lost consciousness.
Trujillo and Roberts reported that they tried to revive Garcia, who later died in hospital. The autopsy showed she’d suffered a broken wrist, bleeding in the neck, swelling of the brain and more than 20 bruises.
The teenagers are now on trial for child abuse causing death and face up to 48 years imprisonment.
