N.J. Woman Lied To Purchase Gun Used In Trooper's Death

February 04, 2011  | 

The woman who purchased the gun used in the killing of Pennsylvania State Trooper Joshua Miller pleaded guilty Wednesday to lying on a form while buying the weapon, reports The Times Leader.

As part of a plea agreement, 25-year-old Emily Gross will not face the additional charge of aiding and abetting a prohibited person from possessing a firearm and offered what they felt to be a light sentence.

"I think to agree to anything other than what she's done is dishonoring Josh," said the trooper's widow Angela.

Gross' boyfriend, Daniel Autenrieth, kidnapped his 9-year-old son from his estranged wife on June 7, 2009, and led police on a 40-mile high-speed chase that ended in a shootout in which both he and Miller died.

Gross pleaded guilty to writing the Pennsylvania address of Autenrieth, instead of her own Westfield, N.J., address on a federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms form required to purchase the Taurus 9mm handgun Autenrieth used to kill Miller.
