Ex-FBI agent sentenced for killing woman

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A retired San Diego FBI agent has been sentenced to eight to 20 years in prison for slaying his son's girlfriend after a plan to evict the woman ended in violence.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports Clark County District Judge Donald Mosley handed down the sentence Wednesday to Edward Preciado-Nuno, who was convicted by a jury of voluntary manslaughter.

The 63-year-old Vietnam War veteran beat Kimberly Long to death with a hammer in November 2008, striking her more than a dozen times in the head.

Preciado-Nuno testified at trial that Long had attacked him with a hammer first and he was defending himself when he killed her.

But Mosley said it was difficult to believe that striking someone in the head 13 times was done in self-defense.
