Ex-FBI Agent Gets Long Prison Term for Fatal Bludgeoning

A former FBI agent has been sentenced to eight to 20 years in prison for killing his son’s former girlfriend with a hammer, The Law Vegas Review-Journal reported.

Edward Preciado-Nuno, 63, was sentenced last Wednesday in Las Vegas for killing Kimberly Long on Nov. 13, 2008. Originally charged with murder, Preciado-Nuno was convicted in December of voluntary manslaughter.

The killing occurred at the home the defendant’s son, Jeffrey Preciado-Nuno, had shared with Long. The defendant claimed that Long attacked him with a hammer when he tried to get her to leave the house and end the turbulent relationship with his son, and that he wielded another hammer in self-defense.

In imposing sentence, Judge Donald Mosley said the self-defense claim was hard to believe, given that the victim was struck on the head 13 times, including once on the back of the head.
