SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Two people accused of lying about buying the firearm used to kill college athlete Lauren McCluskey have pleaded guilty.
Court documents show 21-year-old Nathan Daniel Vogel and 24-year-old Sarah Emily Lady pleaded guilty Monday to making false statements.
Authorities have said Vogel lent the gun to McCluskey’s ex-boyfriend Melvin Rowland without knowing what he intended to do with it.
Nevertheless, prosecutors say he and Lady originally purchased the gun illegally because she lied on his behalf to bypass a required waiting period.
Vogel called Rowland an acquaintance in court documents.
McCluskey and Rowland had briefly dated and broken up before he shot her outside her dorm at the University of Utah last year.
Attorneys for Lady and Vogel could not be immediately reached for comment.
