ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - A federal judge has denied a request to reduce the sentence of a woman who provided the firearms used by a man to fatally shoot two firefighters and wound two others in a Rochester suburb on Christmas Eve in 2012.

A U.S. District Court judge in Rochester recently denied a motion by Dawn Nguyen’s (winz) lawyer to reduce the eight-year sentence imposed in 2014.

Nguyen pleaded guilty to providing guns to a known felon.

The now 28-year-old is in a detention facility in Philadelphia for providing the guns William Spengler used to shoot four firefighters on the morning of Dec. 24, 2012.

The 62-year-old Spengler had killed his sister inside his Webster home, then ambushed firefighters when they arrived to put out the blaze he started. He then killed himself.
