A man convicted in October of aggravated battery has been sentenced to seven years in New Mexico’s Department of Corrections.

Aiden Carpenter, 24, was sentenced by Judge Drew Tatum for his assault on a former girlfriend, according to a news release from District Attorney Andrea Reeb.

“On the afternoon of May 25, 2021, Mr. Carpenter approached his then-girlfriend at Hillcrest Park and confronted her for ending their relationship,” Reeb stated in the release. “He proceeded to strangle her, shoot a BB-Gun at her, and attempt to take her phone.”

A jury found Carpenter guilty of aggravated battery of a household member with strangulation, aggravated assault against a household member by user of a deadly weapon, and larceny, the release stated.
