    Ji told police he wanted to become a prolific serial killer and was "hunting" for victims.

    A Frisco teen obsessed with serial killing received the maximum life sentence today for trying to kill two Collin County residents in 2006.

    Jurors in McKinney yesterday convicted 19-year-old Edward Mike Ji of attempted capital murder and deadly conduct. A judge decided the punishment.

    Ji's mother testified there's a history of mental illness in her family and that her son, who has behaved oddly since childhood, needed treatment.

    Ji was found guilty of shooting then-14-year-old Bryan Chevalier twice when the boy answered the door of his Frisco home.

    Ji told police investigators he was playing a game he called "Ding, Dong, Die."

    Ji was also convicted of shooting at Peter Reid, a Frisco man who was out walking with his wife.

    Ji told police he wanted to become a prolific serial killer and was "hunting" for victims.
