NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - An active-duty member of the U.S. Navy has admitted she helped a New Jersey couple illegally purchase five handguns in Virginia.

Twenty-four-year-old Tesora Amanda Cortes Trejorojas, of Norfolk, Virginia, pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of conspiring with others to transport and receive in New Jersey firearms purchased and obtained outside the state.
