Sister of Green Valley Ranch arson suspect pleads guilty to federal drug, gun charges

The 24-year-old sister of one of the suspects accused of starting the 2020 fire that killed five members of a Senegalese family pleaded guilty Thursday to federal drug and gun charges — crimes uncovered during the investigation into the deadly arson.

Tanya Bui, the older sister of 17-year-old Kevin Bui, pleaded guilty in the US District Court of Colorado to possessing a gun in furtherance of drug trafficking and to possessing fentanyl with intent to distribute the drug.

“Guilty,” she said in a nearly empty courtroom in Denver.

Tanya Bui’s brother is one of three teenagers accused of setting fire to a house in the Green Valley Ranch neighborhood of Denver in August 2020. Tanya Bui has not been charged in connection with the fire, but she frequently dealt drugs with her brother in the months leading up to the blaze, and may have helped her brother cover up the crime, prosecutors have said.
