LAS VEGAS -- A jury has found a North Las Vegas Man guilty of attacking his ex-girlfriend with a machete in March 2012.

Armando Vergara-Martinez hacked off Maria Del Carmen Gomez's hands and severely damaged her scalp during the attack.

During the trial, Vergara-Martinez conceded his guilt on mayhem and domestic battery with a weapon charges but said he was too drunk to remember what happened.

The jury decided his guilt on the charge of attempted murder.

Gomez's hands were surgically reattached, but she died six months later from unrelated cancer.
