Jury selection beginning for Nguyen
Rochester, N.Y. -- Jury selection is scheduled to begin Wednesday in the trial of Dawn Nguyen, the woman accused of supplying weapons to the gunman in the 2012 Christmas Eve ambush in Webster.
Nguyen is accused of lying on forms to buy two guns in 2010 and giving them to William Spengler, who shot four West Webster firefighters, killing two when they responded to a fire at his Lake Road home on Dec. 24, 2012.
Nguyens lawyers said Spengler stole the guns. Theyre concerned about finding unbiased jurors for the trial.
Its certainly an issue, said Matthew Parrinello, Nguyens attorney. Everyone knows, everyone feels bad for what happened on that day, but with our case its alleged to have happened 931 days before, not that day.
West Webster firefighters have already had a presence at several of Nguyens hearings. Theyve vowed to be in court throughout the trial, which is expected to take three weeks.
