"Mortal Kombat" teens fatality 7-year-old

mkt_brutality.pngTwo Colorado teens have been charged in the murder of a 7-year-old girl. According to a witness, Lamar Roberts, 17, and Heather Trujillo, 16, were reportedly imitating moves from “Mortal Kombat” on the victim. The teens were babysitting the child, Trujillo’s half-sister Zoe, while her mother was at work.

Zoe is said to have told the teens to stop before losing consciousness after being punched, kicked and body-slammed. The teens attempted to revive Zoe by running water on her and “attempting CPR” before calling 911. Zoe died at the hospital. An autopsy revealed a broken wrist, heavy bruising, swilling of the brain and internal bleeding along the neck and spine.

When asked why they didn’t stop when Zoe asked Roberts responded, “I don’t know, I was drunk.” They’re facing up to 48 years in prison.
