HENRIETTA, N.Y. (AP/WGRZ) - A Greece woman charged in connection with two guns used in a deadly Christmas Eve ambush of firefighters in Webster made a brief court appearance Tuesday.
Dawn Nguyen is accused of lying on a form when she bought a shotgun and semiautomatic rifle in 2010. Her case was referred to the grand jury.
Prosecutors say she claimed they were for her, but they really were for neighbor and ex-convict William Spengler Jr. of Webster. He had the guns with him when he killed two volunteer firefighters and wounded two others before killing himself.
The 24-year-old Nguyen arrived at Henrietta Town Court Tuesday on a state charge of filing a falsified business record. Nguyen and her attorney, John Parrinello, declined comment.
She appeared on a similar federal charge last month.
