Formal charge against NY woman in fire shootingApril 3, 2013 @ 1:43 pm
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - A New York woman has been indicted on a charge she lied on a form while buying two guns authorities say a neighbor used two years later to ambush and kill firefighters.
Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley says a grand jury indicted Dawn Nguyen (wehn) on Wednesday on one count of falsifying business records.
Nguyen initially was arrested in December and faces similar federal charges. She previously pleaded not guilty.
Defense lawyer Matthew Parrinello says Wednesday's action was expected and Nguyen will remain free pending arraignment.
Authorities say Nguyen bought a rifle and a shotgun for felon William Spengler in 2010 but said they were for her.
Spengler killed two firefighters and wounded two others as they responded to his burning Webster home Christmas Eve. He then killed himself.
