Daniel Petric, 17, shot his father in the head severely wounding him, he proceeded to shoot his mother dead. The defence team argued that playing Halo 3 had made the boy insane and leaded insanity. On the night of the shooting in October 2007, Petric used his father's key to open a lockbox and remove a 9mm handgun and the game,which his parents had confiscated, the court heard. The teenager was tried as an adult and could face life without parole."
