ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Attorneys in federal court will try to convince jurors that Noor Salman didn’t help her husband as he prepared for the attack on the Pulse Nightclub in June of 2016.
Salman is on trial, charged with providing material support to a foreign terror organization, the Islamic State group, and with obstructing justice.
Her attorneys will present their case on Monday.
Federal prosecutors rested their case Thursday. Details about what the couple did and where they were in the days prior to the shooting was presented last week in court.
