Atlanta — A 22-year-old Atlanta man has been convicted of murder and sentenced to life plus five years in prison in connection with the 2014 killing of a man over a PlayStation 4 game console.

The Fulton County District Attorney's Office says a jury convicted Nathaniel Vivian on Wednesday of murder, felony murder, armed robbery and other charges in the fatal shooting of 28-year-old Daniel Zeitz.

Prosecutors alleged that Vivian and Kayla Dixon, then 16, planned to rob Zeitz during a sale arranged on Craigslist.

At their meeting, Vivian tried to take the PlayStation from Zeitz without paying the $280 asking price. In a scuffle, prosecutors say, Dixon pulled out a handgun and fatally shot Zeitz.

Dixon pleaded guilty to murder in July and was sentenced to 40 years in prison.
