Actor Alec Baldwin has been indicted again, charged with involuntary manslaughter by New Mexico prosecutors in the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

The shooting on set during the production of the film, “Rust.” Baldwin was allegedly four feet from the crew on set in a mock church pew when he used his right hand to reach across his body to grab the gun holstered on his left side.  He was reportedly aiming the gun toward cinematographer Halyna Hutchins when he drew back the hammer and released it. The bullet first went through director Joel Souza’s shoulder before striking Hutchins in the chest, killing her.

Ever since the shooting death of Halyna Hutchins on the set of Rust, Alec Baldwin has claimed he didn’t pull the trigger. Even after an FBI report contradicting Baldwin’s account of the shooting saying the trigger had to have been pulled for the gun to fire, Baldwin still says he didn’t pull the trigger. The FBI report says their testing proves the weapon could not be made to fire without the pull of the trigger.

Accidental discharge testing determined that the firearm used in the shooting — a .45 Colt single-action revolver — could not have fired without the trigger being pulled. The FBI Report also says,  With the hammer in the quarter- and half-cock and fully cocked positions, the gun “could not be made to fire without a pull of the trigger. Alec Baldwin says he didn’t pull the trigger

The armorer for the film Hannah Gutierrez-Reed was also charged and she has been convicted and sentenced on manslaughter charges. In recorded Jailhouse phone calls Gutierrez-Reed blasts the jurors calling them “idiots” and “A-Holes,”

Prosecutors say the jailhouse recordings show how she really is outside of court. Gutierrez-Reed wants Alex Baldwin to go to jail too and says she won’t testify at his upcoming trial if subpoenaed.
