The woman who bought the gun used to kill Colorado's prisons chief has pleaded guilty.

Stevie Marie Vigil appeared in court Tuesday afternoon to plead guilty to giving a firearm to a felon, Evan Ebel. He's the only suspect in the March 19 slaying of corrections chief Tom Clements and the killing of computer technician and pizza deliveryman Nathan Leon two days earlier.

Even though there's no plea deal, a guilty plea could help Vigil gain a lighter sentence. The 22-year-old faces up to 10 years in prison. Vigil will be sentenced Jan. 16.
