Police say they have recovered the gun used in the killing of a Vermont man and the victim's stepson is facing a federal firearms charge that he possessed the weapon.
Federal court documents say the 9 mm pistol used to kill 45-year-old David Auclair, of Williston, was stolen the night of July 10 from a Colchester home.
Auclair was killed with that weapon the next night in Hinesburg. Police later recovered the gun from the Lewis Creek near where Auclair was killed.

No charges have been filed in Auclair's death.
George's attorney did not return a call seeking comment. He's being held pending a bail hearing.
