A Georgia judge sentenced 18-year-old Kayla Dixon to 40 years jailtime this week after she pled guilty to shooting a man over his PlayStation 4.


In September of 2014, 28-year-old Daniel Zeitz had put up a Craigslist post in hopes of selling his PS4. According to the police, Dixon and her boyfriend, Nathaniel Vivian, responded to the listing but then attempted to rob Zeitz. When Zeitz resisted, Dixon shot him, prosecutors said.

WSB-TV in Atlanta reports that Dixon confessed to the crime as part of a plea deal. “I would trade anything, almost anything, to bring Daniel back. But I know I can’t,” she said in a statement to press. “I know he had plans. I wish I could tell him I’m so, so sorry that this happened, but I can’t.”

Vivian will be tried later this summer.
