NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A convicted murderer has pleaded guilty to selling the gun that was used to kill ex-NFL quarterback Steve McNair.

Federal court documents filed Friday show that Adrian Gilliam of LaVergne, Tenn., admitted that he sold a loaded 9 mm semiautomatic pistol for $100 to McNair's mistress.

Nashville police said the woman, Sahel Kazemi, used the weapon to kill McNair and herself on July 4.

Police said the 19-year-old Kazemi met Gilliam while she was trying to sell her car and told him she was looking to buy a gun.

Gilliam was arrested about two weeks after the shootings.

Gilliam, who is 33, faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
