WoW addict charged in murder

I came across this story of a WoW addicted mother and the sad story of the murder of a child. While the article carefully does not come out and say it was because of addiction, it's implied, and you can see a possible connection. I'm sure she was troubled before with other issues, as I can not believe that any sane person would even consider something like this, never mind do it. Either way this Houston Chronicle article is not pleasant, so be warned.

Interestingly enough, online, Zeigler was a powerful warlock, a character not unlike a mage gone bad. The game's warlocks tap into the evil side of magic and rule over demonic minions that do their bidding. A warlock's spell can do damage immediately to an enemy or damage over time, eroding an enemy's power slowly.
