Edward Preciado-Nuno

A retired FBI agent was found guilty of voluntary manslaughter on Tuesday for using a hammer to beat his son’s girlfriend to death, the Las Vegas Sun reported.

Edward Presciado-Nuno, whose trial began last week, had worked at the FBI bureau in San Diego until 2003,when he resigned.

On Nov. 13, 2008, Presciado-Nuno allegedly went to the Las Vegas home shared by his son Jeffrey Preciado-Nuno, his son’s girlfriend, Kimberly Long, and their infant son at the request of Presciado-Nuno’s son. The defendant allegedly asked his son to leave the house while he talked with Long about her moving out due to the turbulent relationship between her and the younger Presciado-Nuno.

Presciado-Nuno claimed that Long attacked him with a hammer for trying to take legal means to get her to leave the house. As a result, he said, he used another hammer against her in self-defense, the Sun reported.

Presciado-Nuno had pleaded not guilty to the charge of murder with a deadly weapon.

The case is being handled by Clark County prosecutor Giancarlo Pesci.

Preciado-Nuno is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 23, 2011. He faces up to 10 years in prison, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. However, District Judge Donald Mosley has the option of sentencing him to probation.
