A Greece woman's statements to police after her neighbor shot and killed two firefighters are the topic of a federal court hearing.
 
Dawn Nguyen is charged with providing the guns used in the Christmas Eve attack in Webster that also left two firefighters wounded.
 
A court hearing is scheduled for Wednesday on whether statements Nguyen made to authorities on the day of the attack will be allowed as evidence at her trial.
 
Nguyen has pleaded not guilty to the charges she was a "straw buyer" who lied when she signed paperwork saying the weapons she was buying were for her.
 
Police say William Spengler set fire to his home to lure firefighters and then shot at them. He killed himself during a shootout with police.
