WESTFIELD, NJ — A New Jersey woman admitted in federal court yesterday that she lied on a firearms-purchase application when she bought a handgun that was used nine days later to kill a Pennsylvania state trooper.

The woman, Emily Joy Gross, 25, of Westfield, bought the Taurus 9 mm pistol and box of ammo on May 29, 2009. Her then-boyfriend, Daniel Autenrieth, used the gun to kill Trooper Joshua Miller during a high-speed chase and subsequent shootout in Monroe County on June 7, 2009.
