DENVER (AP) -- The woman accused of providing the gun used to kill Colorado's prisons chief is now facing a federal charge.
Stevie Marie Vigil was arrested Friday morning after a federal grand jury charged her with knowingly giving a firearm to Evan Ebel. He's the sole suspect in the March 19 slaying of state corrections chief Tom Clements.
Prosecutors say Vigil bought a 9mm handgun and gave it to Ebel, a convicted felon who wasn't allowed to have a gun. Ebel was killed days later in a shootout with law enforcement officers in Texas.
Vigil was arrested as she appeared in court on a similar state charge, which was dismissed Friday. Defense attorney Normando Pacheco says she was set to go to trial Monday.
