Jury Continues Deliberation In Firefighter Ambush

Rochester, N.Y. - Jury deliberations are set to resume in the trial of a woman charged with buying the guns a man used to kill two suburban Rochester volunteer firefighters on Christmas Eve 2012.

After Dawn Nguyen's defense attorney rested his case Monday, a state Supreme Court jury deliberated for about an hour Monday before the judge sent jurors home. Deliberations are scheduled to resume Tuesday morning.

Prosecutors say Nguyen bought two guns for William Spengler Jr., who set fire to his Webster home early on the morning of Dec. 24, 2012, then shot at firefighters when they arrived. Two were killed and two others were wounded before Spengler committed suicide.

Spengler was a convicted felon who was barred from owning firearms.
