Hutchins was killed in October 2021 when she was struck by a bullet from a prop gun held by Baldwin, who was rehearsing a scene from the low-budget western movie Rust. Baldwin has said he did not intentionally pull the trigger and that the gun malfunctioned. Prosecutors dispute that. 

Baldwin is not the first person to face trial as a result of the tragic incident. Rust’s armorer, Hannah Guitierrez-Reed, was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in April 2024 after a jury determined she failed to follow basic safety protocols when it came to handling firearms on set. She is currently serving 18 months in prison.
