DAYTONA BEACH, FL (AP) -- A judge delivered death sentences Thursday to the ringleader and a participant in the bloody beating deaths of six people over an Xbox video game system.

Troy Victorino, 29, and Jerone Hunter, 20, were sentenced by Chief Circuit Judge Bill Parsons after their convictions on first-degree murder for the 2004 slaughter of six people in a Deltona house. Neither man showed emotion when the verdicts were read.

I guess the X-box was worth killing for. People kill for less and they kill for more.

Hunter's attorney Ed Mills, who had argued his client should not received the death penalty because he suffers from schizophrenia. Jeff Dowdy, Victorino's attorney, had asked Parsons to spare his client because he has mental problems and was abused as a child.

Boo hoo. Ya know, I had to clean my room when I was a kid. What kind of free pass does that get me?
