Mir 2 Player Sentence To Death Over Virtual Item Murder

A Legend of Mir2 player named Qiu Chengwei was sentenced to death by the Shanghai No.2 Intermediate People's Court this week for murder. Qiu once owned a top grade virtual weapon from online game Legend of Mir2 called Tu Long Dao (Dragon Killing Blade). Qiu lent the virtual weapon to a friend surnamed Zhu, who also played Legend of Mir2, in 2004. However, Zhu sold the virtual weapon for about 7,000 Yuan and refused to give the money to Qiu. Qiu then murdered Zhu in October 2004.
