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.
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.
