Investigators are looking into how much the woman accused of buying the gun used to kill Colorado's corrections chief knew about the slaying.

Twenty-two-year-old Stevie Marie Vigil made her first appearance in court Thursday in Centennial after being arrested for buying the gun and giving it to Evan Ebel. Ebel was a felon who was barred from possessing a firearm.

She was ordered held on $25,000 bond. She faces one count of unlawful purchase of a firearm. It carries a penalty of between two and 16 years in prison.

An El Paso County Sheriff's Office spokesman says investigators don't know yet what Vigil knew about what Ebel planned to do.

Prosecutor Mark Hurlbert wouldn't comment on whether other charges are being considered. Vigil's lawyer left the hearing without comment.
