NJ Man Pleads Guilty In Game Boy Slaying

PATERSON, N.J. (AP) – A New Jersey man has admitted stabbing another to death in the heart over a stolen Game Boy video game.
John Rosa pleaded guilty to passion-provocation manslaughter on Thursday.

The 23-year-old Paterson resident faces up to six years in prison when he’s sentenced in January. Under terms of the plea deal, Rosa will be under parole supervision for three years after he’s released.

The Record newspaper reports Rosa admitted he got into a fight with Davone McCrary in May. Rosa said he didn’t mean to kill the 26-year-old, but his actions were committed in the heat of the moment.
