Halyna Hutchins’ family say they support Alec Baldwin being charged with manslaughter – months after settling a wrongful death lawsuit with the Hollywood star.
Baldwin, 64, and armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, 25, were charged with involuntary manslaughter Thursday, 15 months after the 42-year-old cinematographer was shot dead by the actor on the set of Rust in New Mexico.
The Hutchins family, including her husband Matthew and nine-year-old son Andros, welcomed the decision through their lawyer Brian J Panish who said: ‘It is a comfort to the family that, in New Mexico, no one is above the law.’
Panish added that Hutchins had been killed ‘with conscious disregard for human life’ and stated that an ‘independent investigation also supports charges are warranted.’
It comes after Baldwin reached an undisclosed settlement with the family in October after they brought a wrongful death lawsuit against the actor, the armorer and other producers.
