The man charged with providing the gun used to kill two Westerville police officers formally pleaded guilty on Thursday. 

Sentencing is pending for 30-year-old Gerald Lawson, who prosecutors say bought the handgun 31-year-old Quentin Smith used in the February slayings of Eric Joering and Anthony Morelli. A plea deal was filed in court  last week.
