Gets 18 years


David Heiss,
an avid online gamer from Germany, was found guilty yesterday of murdering fellow gamer Matthew Pyke from Nottingham.

Heiss met Pyke on the Advanced Wars online chat at WarCentral.com, and soon became obsessed with his girlfriend, Joanna Witton, also a gamer. Last September Heiss traveled to Nottingham and stabbed Pyke 86 times. He even tried to write his name on the side of an old computer. Heiss then returned to Germany, wearing Pyke's baseball cap and shoes.
