Clark County prosecutors said Hypes purposefully pointed a gun at Marsh’s head and pulled the trigger. Clark County Public Defender Rebekah Sinnott argued that the killing was an accident.

Driscoll and his brother, Dan Driscoll, were prosecutors for the state. They argued not only did Hypes intentionally kill Marsh, but he also didn’t try to get her help.
“He doesn’t ask (for someone) to call for help,” Brian Driscoll said during opening arguments. “He flees … He runs.”
Hypes will serve 18 years to life in prison.
Marsh’s family and friends took to social media to celebrate the verdict as justice for her.
“Thank you, God, for finally bringing closure to this heartbreaking event for this wonderful family,” a poster wrote. “May God continue to put his blessings upon this little child and her family.”
