Teenager Admits to Brutally Murdering his Mother over a PlayStation 3

In very sad news, a sixteen year old boy has confessed to the murder of his mother. On November 26th of last year, Kendall Anderson attacked and killed his mother as she slept. Kendall was angry because his mother, Rashida Anderson, had taken away his PlayStation 3 in response to his bad behavior. He then contemplated killing his mother for three hours before making up his mind. This could suggest that he waited until she went to sleep.

After deciding,  he crept into her room and then struck her with a claw hammer twenty times. He then attempted to dispose of her body in the oven. When this proved unsuccessful, he resumed beating her in the head (which is odd because I would imagine she was already dead) , this time with the leg of a chair. After this, he buried her behind the house. Kendall showed remorse for his actions in court, saying:

“If I could, I would not do it again. I really miss my mom . . . she was the only person who cared for me.”

Video game crimes are never good for the industry, but they are usually significantly worse for the people involved. This is potentially the worse video game related crime I have ever had the displeasure of reporting. Our condolences go out to the families of Rashida and Kendall Anderson. Kendall is being charged with murder, possession of an instrument of crime and abuse of a corpse.
