Guilty: Murder for Magic Cards!

 WILLIAM-CORMIER

PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) — A fantasy game enthusiast was sentenced to life in prison without parole for beating a former Pensacola newspaper reporter to death with a hammer and burying his body in a concrete-covered pit in Georgia.

Prosecutors say William Cormier III was so desperate for money that he killed Sean Dugas in the fall of 2012 so he could steal his $100,000 collection of fantasy role-playing cards.

Jurors convicted Cormier of first-degree murder after a little more than an hour of deliberations. Cormier III showed no reaction as the verdict was read.

A judge sentenced him after hearing testimony during the sentencing phase Thursday afternoon.
