Santa Fe District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies announced that her office filed the charges Tuesday.

Investigators outlined evidence that Baldwin had his finger on the trigger before the gun went off and that he skipped required safety training.

Halyna Hutchins died shortly after being wounded during rehearsals at a ranch on the outskirts of Santa Fe in October 2021.
