Orange County Man Convicted of Killing Girlfriend

An Orange County man was convicted on Monday on charges of second-degree manslaughter. In August 2013 27-year old Christian Benson was arrested after his girlfriend, 30-year old Kristi Babcock, was shot in the chest when the gun they were handling discharged. Babcock was a well-liked member of the New Windsor Recreation Department, and Assistant Attorney Michael Milza stated that Benson was experienced in handling guns and acted recklessly and irresponsibly that day. On Monday an Orange County jury decided to convict the man, who will be sentenced on September 16 and is being held on bail until then.
