Woman Indicted In Connection With New York Firefighter Murders

An upstate New York woman has been indicted on a charge that she lied on a form while buying two guns later used to ambush and kill firefighters in upstate Webster on Christmas Eve, reports CBS New York.

A grand jury indicted Dawn Nguyen on one count of falsifying business records. Nguyen, who was initially arrested in December and faces similar federal charges, has previously pleaded not guilty.

Authorities say Nguyen bought a rifle and shotgun for William Spengler in 2010, but said they were for her.

Michael Chiapperini, 34, and Tomasz Kaczowska, 19, were killed on Dec. 24 of last year after Spengler, a 62-year-old ex-convict, armed himself with three weapons and set his house on fire in Webster to lure first responders into a death trap, police said.

Two other firefighters, Joseph Hofsetter and Theodore Scardino, were both wounded in the incident.
