Man who shot himself in suicide try, killed girlfriend

An Alaska prosecutor says authorities found one casing at the scene of a shooting that killed a woman when her boyfriend tried to kill himself and the bullet passed through his head and hit her.

Victor Sibson survived and has been charged with second-degree murder in the April 19 shooting of 22-year-old Brittanymae Haag at the couple's Anchorage apartment. Haag died at a hospital the same day.

Assistant District Attorney James Fayette says the bullet was recovered from Haag's chest during her autopsy — "powerfully corroborating one shot being fired."

A judge has entered a not-guilty plea on behalf of Sibson.
