SANTA FE, N.M. (FOX Carolina) - Two private attorneys have been named as special prosecutors in the deadly shooting on set of the film ‘Rust’ that claimed the life of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

Santa Fe District Attorney Mary Carmack Altwies made the announcement two weeks after New Mexico Rep. Andrea Reeb stepped down as special prosecutor in the case.

“I will not allow questions about my serving as a legislator and prosecutor to cloud the real issue at hand,” Reeb said.

Actor Alec Baldwin and weapons handler Hannah Gutierrez-Reed are charged with involuntary manslaughter after Hutchins was accidentally killed with a pistol during a rehearsal in 2021.

Before she made it to Hollywood, Hutchins studied at USC Upstate in Spartanburg and interned at ETV Upstate. She is survived behind husband Matthew Hutchins and son Andros.
