A Connecticut man charged with killing his teenage girlfriend with a shotgun blast to the neck has been acquitted of the most serious charges he faced.

The Hartford Courant reports that a jury on Monday found 24-year-old Torrick Maragh not guilty of murder, but did convict him of illegal possession of a sawed-off shotgun.

Prosecutors say Maragh killed 18-year-old high school senior Nasashalie Hoy in January 2016 in the basement of a Hartford home during an argument over Hoy’s contacts with another man.

Maragh maintained that Hoy killed herself during the confrontation.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner ruled Hoy’s death a homicide, not a suicide.

Maragh faces up to 10 years behind bars on the gun charges at sentencing March 28.
