1. Weapon spell kills victim
2. Dead victim removed from game with extract_char(victim)
3. victim=0x0 (NULL)
4. hit() is called with a valid ch, but invalid victim
5. victim->in_room is an illegal operation since there's no victim
6. segmentaion fault, core dumped
7. Go back to your code and add a check for FIGHTING(ch) to make sure it's
   still valid (non-NULL) after calling the weapon casting function
