Colorado (CNN) - Authorities arrested this 22-year-old woman Wednesday in connection with the murder of Colorado's prison chief.
Stevie Vigil is accused of buying the gun that was used to kill Tom Clements.
He was shot at the front door of his home last week.
Investigators say Vigil gave the gun to Evan Ebel, who is believed to have pulled the trigger.
Ebel was a convicted felon and could not purchase his own firearm legally.
He was killed in a chase and shootout with Texas authorities last week.
Vigil faces one count of unlawful purchase of a firearm.
If convicted, she could face up to 16 years in prison.
