NEWTOWN - A Bronx woman is accused of using the Newtown shooting for personal gain.

Nouel Alba was arrested by the FBI charged with posing as a relative of a Newtown shooting victim to get money.

Authorities say the 37-year-old sent out Facebook messages, calls, and text messages for a funeral fund for 6-year-old Noah Pozner.
