Authorities say the wife of a convicted felon charged in the shooting death of an off-duty police officer now faces federal charges of her own.
The U.S. attorney’s office in Memphis says Natalie Clark has been indicted on charges that she gave her husband three guns despite knowing he is not allowed to have firearms because he is a convicted felon.
Lorenzo Clark is charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm in the shooting of Officer Terence Olridge on Oct. 11. Police say the men, who are neighbors, got into an argument that escalated into an exchange of gunfire.
Olridge was shot multiple times and died at a hospital. But authorities have said there was not enough evidence to charge Lorenzo Clark with murder.
