A man has been accused of fatally shooting his girlfriend after trying to kill himself with a gun.

Victor Sibson (21) from Alaska pleaded not guilty to the charge of second-degree murder of Brittany-Mae Haag (22), according to Fox News.

The bullet reportedly went through Mr Sibson's head and into Ms Haag's heart on April 19.

The two were high-school sweethearts.

“I think a lot of it is still hard to grasp of how is it just one bullet, you know? And how does it go through one person and then the other person and kill the second person? It’s just not fair,” Chelsea Hartman, the victim’s sister, told KTVA.

In Ms Haag's obituary her family describe her as "passionate" and "generous".

They called her death "a senseless act of violence which forever changed the lives of many".

Mr Sibson's trial is scheduled for August 21.
