A 24-year-old New York woman was indicted Thursday on federal charges in connection with guns used by a former neighbor in the Christmas Eve shooting of four volunteer firefighters in Webster (NY), reports the USA Today.
A federal grand jury indicted Dawn Nguyen on three counts: knowingly making a false statement in connection with a firearm purchase; providing guns to William Spengler Jr., a felon; and possessing guns while illegally using marijuana.
Nguyen bought a shotgun and semiautomatic rifle from Gander Mountain, an outdoors store, when she was neighbors with Spengler on Lake Road in Webster.
Nguyen allegedly admitted that Spengler helped her pick out the guns, which she claimed in an interview with investigators were later stolen, court papers say.
As a convicted felon, Spengler was banned from owning guns. He served 17 years in state prison for killing his grandmother with a hammer in 1980. Nguyen lived next door to Spengler for about five years, in the house where he killed his grandmother.
