    Nguyen lied about who was the true owner of the guns, which is a felony.

      that was the deaths of those firefighters.

      If I steal a car, then sell it to you, then you use it as a getaway vehicle two years later...yes I've committed a felony to steal the car, and yes that car was then given to someone who used it to commit a crime two years later, but I am not an accomplice and the felony-murder rule would not apply.

      The crime of the other person is independent of the crime I committed.
