A Washington resident was killed in late April after his attempt to sell a diamond ring on Craigslist went terribly awry.

Jim Sanders and his wife, Charlene Sanders, posted the ring, a family heirloom, on Craigslist. They were contacted by people, believed to be posing as interested buyers, who told the Sanders they wanted to come to their home to see the ring.

As ABC News reports, Jim Sanders opened the door to the prospective buyers, who forced their way into the family's home, then tied up Jim and Charlene, and their two sons. Jim Sanders "watched his family beaten before he was shot and killed in cold blood," says ABC News.

ABC News reports on the attack in the video below.
