Trial: Webster Christmas Eve Shooting

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - Jury selection begins this week for the trial of an upstate New York woman accused of buying the guns a convicted felon used to shoot and kill firefighters during a Christmas Eve ambush.

Dawn Nguyen will be in state Supreme Court in Rochester Tuesday. She is charged with falsifying a business record for allegedly lying on a gun purchase form in 2010. Prosecutors say she claimed a rifle and shotgun she bought were for her when they were really for ex-convict William Spengler Jr.

Spengler used the guns to kill two firefighters and wound three other first responders in Webster last December, before killing himself.

Nguyen has denied the charges.

She faces similar charges in federal court.
