Defense rests in Dawn Nguyen trial
Rochester, N.Y. - The defense has rested its case in the trial of Dawn Nguyen after calling just one witness.
Monday morning, the defense called Nguyen's boyfriend to the stand. He had dated a prosecution witness at the time of the Christmas Eve ambush, in which William Spengler killed his sister and two West Webster firefighters and injured two others.
Nguyen is accused of supplying Spengler, a convicted killer, with the guns used in the attack.
During cross-examination, Nguyen's boyfriend said that she never spoke about guns or practiced with them. The defense had argued that Nguyen had bought the guns for herself for self-defense, but that they had been stolen from her.
Closing arguments are expected to begin midday Monday.
