ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

Thursday morning, an Odessa jury is deciding the outcome in the trial of a man accused of shooting and killing his girlfriend back in March of 2014.

Authorities say they found Kimberly Root, the girlfriend of Eric Holguin, 25, with a gunshot wound to her neck at a home on West 23rd Street.

She later died from her injuries.

Holguin told authorities he was examining the gun and thought it was empty when he pulled the trigger.
