Jury selection was supposed to begin Tuesday in the trial of a woman accused of buying the guns a convicted felon used to shoot and kill firefighters during a Christmas Eve ambush but it has been postponed.
News10NBC has learned the trial for Dawn Nguyen has been delayed until April 2014.

Nguyen is charged with falsifying a business record for allegedly lying on a gun purchase form in 2010. Prosecutors say she claimed a rifle and shotgun she bought were for her when they were really for ex-convict William Spengler Jr.
Spengler used the guns to kill firefighters Mike Chiapperini and Tomasz Kaczowka as they responded to the house fire he set on Lake Road on the morning of Christmas Eve.
Nguyen has denied the charges. She faces similar charges in federal court.
