Carlsbad Man Guilty of Second Degree Murder

CARLSBAD, NM (KWES) -

A Carlsbad man has been found guilty of second degree murder.

27-year-old Dallas Hnulik shot and killed Brandy Capps back in 2010.

Authorities say the 32-year-old woman died after getting shot in the face at a range of four inches.

Hnulik says he was in a relationship with Capps at the time.

He claims they got into an argument and the gun accidentally went off.

Last year, he was arrested on charges of first degree murder but prosecutors asked the jurors to consider second degree murder.

Hnulik is now facing up to 16 years behind bars.
