Teenage Killer Caught Through Xbox 360 Game

An Xbox 360 game has played a role in the collection of evidence against a teenager who shot and killed a girl back in September 2009.

A teenager, whose name cannot be reported due to his age during the alleged crime, is facing charges of second-degree murder after he shot and killed Charlotte Jolly in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on September 1, 2009.

Jolly and the teenager were in two separate groups that confronted each other in an alley. During the confrontation, she was shot by a stolen rifle that came from a stolen car.

The court recruited the teenager's uncle aid in the investigation in exchange for the dropping of a drunk driving charge. With his uncle's intervention, the teen gave his account of the shooting, which recorded via a hidden microphone that was set up alongside his Guitar Hero game.

Police then was able to arrest and charge the youth with second-degree murder. The defence said that it would admit to the murder but will push for intent as a major factor in the case.
