DENVER (CBSDFW.COM/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 North Texas. Members of state law enforcement pursued Ebel after he shot Montague County Sheriff’s Department Deputy James Boyd.

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.
