Meet Lex!
This wiggly, sweet guy is Lex! He's a 2-year-old Pit Bull mix who was transferred to Lollypop Farm from Rochester Animal Services. He weighs 47 pounds and is a happy-go-lucky pup who gets excited about everyone he meets. He loves attention from people and playing outside in the courtyard. Lex would love an active owner who will take him on long walks and then snuggle with him on the couch after. Lollypop Farm recommends Lex go to a home with kids age 10 or older, and he needs to meet any dogs already in the home. Training classes will help Lex brush up on his doggy manners, and he and his new adopter will receive a discount on their first 6 week session together. To find out more about Lex, call 223-1330 or visit him at Lollypop Farm at 99 Victor Rd., Fairport 14450. Panda, our "Friday's Friend" from last week, has been adopted!

Day four of testimony in Dawn Nguyen trial

A sheriff's deputy, who is a friend of the woman accused of buying the guns used in the West Webster tragedy, took the stand in her trial Thursday.

Dawn Nguyen is accused of buying the guns for the suspect, William Spengler.

Police say Spengler fired upon four West Webster firefighters who responded to reports of a car fire on Lake Road back on Christmas Eve morning 2012. Two of the firefighters, Mike Chiapperini and Tomasz Kaczowka, were killed.

This afternoon, a Monroe County Sheriff’s Deputy took the stand. He says Nguyen told him she bought guns for William Spengler, a convicted felon.

Key witness could take the stand in trial of Greece woman linked to West Webster tragedy

A friend of Dawn Nguyen, the woman accused of buying the guns used to kill two firefighters and injured two others, says moments after Nguyen saw the video of the West Webster attack; she began sending alarming text messages. Defense attorneys claim the trial is now about a possible love triangle and that the witness is out for revenge.

Investigators claim Tomasz Kaczowka and Michael Chiapperini were killed because Nguyen purchased the guns for William Spengler. He purposely set the fire and began shooting at fire crews when they arrived.     

In court Wednesday, it was more like a soap opera than a criminal trial. The prosecution called a key witness to the stand and that witness is the only one so far to testify that she heard straight from Nguyen that she bought the guns and was paid to do it.
