Infant Daughter Dies as Parents Play Online Game


A thoughtless couple in their 20s who left their four-month old daughter at home while they played Internet computer games at a nearby PC café have been booked by police after the child died.

According to Incheon Police Station on Tuesday, a 29-year-old man husband identified by his family name of Yu and his wife put their four-month daughter in the bedroom of their home and went to a neighborhood PC café at around 4:00 p.m. on May 24 to play the online game "World of Warcraft.

Time flew by as the couple lost themselves in the game, and when they returned home at 9:00 p.m., their daughter was lying on her stomach, dead of suffication.

The couple told police, "We were thinking of playing for just an hour or two and returning home like usual, but the game took longer that day."

Police said an investigation turned up that the couple, who wed last year, used to play "World of Warcraft" whenever they had time.



Police said, "It's unfortunate, because the tragedy could have been averted if the couple had just left their daughter with Yu's mother-in-law, who lived upstairs from them... We booked the pair on criminal charges, judging that when you consider the situation, they were responsible for their daughter's death." Major U.S. online game producer Blizzard, which grew famous with the game "Starcraft", produced the game to which Yu and his wife were addicted, "World of Warcraft." The game allows multiple players to form teams to fight battles and enjoy various adventures. (Lee Yong-su, hejsue@chosun.com )

TAMPA -- As his 9-month-old son cried last July, Tony Lamont Bragg Sr.'s mind was on something else: a computer game called Everquest.

Authorities believe Bragg squeezed Tony Jr. to keep him quiet, then left him unattended in a utility closet in their Temple Terrace apartment for more than 24 hours. The boy died.

On Tuesday, Bragg, 24, pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter and was sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Bragg had been playing the online fantasy role-playing computer game for hours and appeared to get annoyed by his son's crying, said prosecutor Suzanne Rossomondo.

Bragg discovered his son by his playpen at least 24 hours after the child died. The infant's heart had been punctured, causing him to bleed to death. His ribs and left collarbone were fractured.

Prosecutors originally charged Bragg with first-degree murder, but accepted his guilty plea to the lesser charge because they did not believe he intended to kill his son. "I think it was a horrible case of neglect," Rossomondo said.

Circuit Judge Rex Barbas added five years' probation to the end of Bragg's prison sentence.

Bragg's former wife, Brandy L. Rozier, left their son with Bragg after she lost electricity at her home. She also dropped off Bragg's 4-year-old stepson.

Bragg kept his 9-month-old in a playpen in a 4- by 8-foot utility closet that contained the air conditioner and heater. Authorities found pizza in the kitchen, but an associate medical examiner said the infant was undernourished.

Bragg originally said he was carrying his son when the child's head, chest and shoulder slammed into a door frame.

Before he was supposed to drop off his son at a relative's home, Bragg noticed his son was not breathing. He called 911.

The boy's mother, who is separated from Bragg, has two other children. Both are in state custody.

Rossomondo said she told the child's mother about the plea deal. "She was very happy about it," Rossomondo said. - David Karp can be reached at (813) 226-3376 or karp@sptimes.com.

Gamer gets life for murder over virtual sword



Reuters


A Chinese online game player who stabbed a competitor to death for selling his cyber-sword has been given a suspended death sentence, which in effect means life imprisonment.

The case had created a dilemma in China, where no law exists for the ownership of virtual weapons.

Qiu Chengwei, 41, stabbed competitor Zhu Caoyuan in the chest after he was told Zhu had sold Chengwei's 'dragon sabre', used in the popular online game Legend of Mir 3, the China Daily reported on Wednesday.

Legend of Mir 3 features heroes and villains, sorcerers and warriors, many of whom wield enormous swords.

Qiu was sentenced to death "with a two-year reprieve", which in effect means life behind bars. That, in turn, could be reduced to 15 years if he behaves well, the newspaper said of the sentence, which has angered the victim's family.

"My son was only 26 when he died," said Zhu Huimin, the dead man's father, who is planning to appeal. "He was sleeping when Qiu broke into his home. He was barely able to put on his pants before Qiu stabbed him.

"We want Qiu to die, and immediately."

Qiu and a friend jointly won their weapon last February, and lent it to Zhu who then sold it for 7,200 yuan (£480), the newspaper said.

Qui went to the police to report the 'theft', but was told the weapon was not real property protected by law.

"Zhu promised to hand over the cash, but an angry Qui lost patience and attacked Zhu at his home, stabbing him in the left chest with great force and killing him," the court was told.

More and more online gamers are seeking justice through the courts over stolen weapons and credits, the newspaper said at the time the case went to trial.

"The armour and swords in games should be deemed as private property, as players have to spend money and time for them," Wang Zongyu, an associate law professor at Beijing's Renmin University of China, was quoted as saying. But other experts have called for caution. "The 'assets' of one player could mean nothing to others as they are by nature just data created by game providers," a lawyer for a Shanghai-based Internet game company was quoted as saying.
