(AP)  Jury selection is set to begin in the trial of a local woman accused of buying the guns a convicted felon was carrying when he shot and killed firefighters during a Christmas Eve ambush last year. 

Dawn Nguyen is scheduled to be in state Supreme Court in Rochester Tuesday. 

She's charged with falsifying a business record. Prosecutors say she lied on a gun purchase form in 2010. They say she claimed a rifle and shotgun she bought were for her when they were really for ex-convict William Spengler Jr. She has denied the charges. 

Spengler killed two firefighters and wounded three other first responders in Webster last December and killing himself during a gunfight with police.
