FRESNO, Calif. (AP) – A Central California man has been convicted of killing his friend playing a version of Russian roulette.
The Fresno Bee reported Monday that jurors found 22-year-old Terrance Tyrone Lee guilty of second-degree murder in the September 2012 death of 18-year-old high school student Marquis Sutton.
At trial, Deputy District Attorney Stephanie Savrnoch said a group four men was playing video games in an apartment when Lee pulled out a revolver and emptied all but one bullet.
Savrnoch says the chamber was empty the first time Lee pointed the gun at Sutton’s chest and pulled the trigger.
But on the second time, she says, Lee shot Sutton in the neck, killing him.
Defense attorneys argued that Lee didn’t understand the consequences of his actions or mean to kill Sutton.
