DENVER - The woman who bought the gun used to kill Colorado's prisons chief Tom Clements was to be sentenced on Thursday, but the judge continued her sentencing until March 3.

Stevie Vigil is pleading guilty to giving a firearm to a felon.

The plea could get her a lighter sentence.

Vigil has admitted to giving the gun to Evan Ebel.

Ebel is the only suspect in the death of corrections chief Clements.

He's also suspected of killing another man, Nate Leon, two days earlier. Leon was a computer technician and pizza delivery driver.

Prosecutors didn't offer a plea deal, but a guilty plea could still help Vigil get a lighter sentence.

The 22-year-old faces up to 10 years in prison.
