GREELEY, Colorado - A Colorado teen has been sentenced to 36 years in prison for his role in the death of a 7-year-old girl during an apparent imitation of the "Mortal Kombat" video game.
Lamar Roberts was sentenced Friday in Greeley's Weld County District Court. The 18-year-old pleaded guilty last month to knowingly or recklessly causing a death through child abuse.
Prosecutors say Roberts and 17-year-old Heather Trujillo were baby-sitting Zoe Garcia on Dec. 6, 2007. They say the two kicked, hit and slammed Trujillo's half-sister to the floor.
Trujillo pleaded guilty in July to negligently causing death through child abuse. She must serve six years in Colorado's youth offender system.
Those two are clearly of age to know better so i hope someone Mortal kombats there asses. "Fatality" you loose
