"Hilaria has been Alec's rock throughout all of this, and to see him so distraught is heartbreaking for her," the source continued to spill, adding that his doting wife "is doing whatever she can to support him and they're doing their best to stay strong for the kids."

The Santa Fe District Attorney's Office broke news of the Beetlejuice actor's charges on Thursday, January 20, more than one year after the devastating incident left Hutchins dead at the age of 42 after an on-set shooting turned fatal during the taping of Rust.

"Rust actor and producer Alec Baldwin and armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed will each be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Halyna Hutchins on the film’s Santa Fe County set in 2021," a representative confirmed on the office's Facebook page.

Despite the revealed involuntary manslaughter charges, Alec and the rest of Rust's cast will reportedly begin filming once again at some point this month after the It's Complicated star settled a wrongful-death lawsuit with Hutchins' widower, Matthew, in October 2022.

"I have no interest in engaging in recriminations or attribution of blame (to the producers or Mr. Baldwin). All of us believe Halyna's death was a terrible accident. I am grateful that the producers and the entertainment community have come together to pay tribute to Halyna's final work," Hutchins' husband and father of their 10-year-old son, Andros, expressed in a statement at the time.
