BUFFALO, N.Y. — Federal investigators Wednesday appeared to take a step forward in their probe into who used a barricade in an attempt to derail an Amtrak passenger train carrying 354 people in Irving last July.

Christine Seneca, 44, and James E. Phillips, 48, who live on the Seneca Nation's Cattaraugus Reservation, pleaded guilty to felony charges in federal court, admitting that they lied to police about the incident and promising to cooperate in the investigation.

The full story appears on the Buffalo News website.
