A 42-year-old man was convicted of a double murder in the shooting of his girlfriend and his barber after a vodka-and-beer-fueled argument over a bad haircut at his friend’s house in New Mexico.

Mark Valencia was convicted on Wednesday in the murders of 40-year-old Steven Singer and 48-year-old Eva Aragon. He was also convicted of attempted murder for trying to kill his friend, homeowner David Sturgeon, who managed to escape being hit by a bullet that tore through a closet door where he hid and called 911 as Valencia tried to get in.
