Salman has pleaded not guilty to charges of aiding and abetting Mateen’s allegiance to ISIS.
The prosecutors have said Salman knew Mateen was buying ammunition for his AR-15, helped him spend thousands of dollars for the attack and knew about his plan when he left the house in the hours before the shooting. They also say that they lied, tried to deceive FBI agents, and had knowledge of her husband’s fascination with the violent jihad-videos and terrorism.
How much did the woman of the Wrist shooter know?
Mateen had described a woman who knowingly went on at least two locations with Mateen “scout” sites of potential terrorist attacks. One was in the City Place, an open-air shopping center in West Palm Beach. The other was Disney Springs, a crowded dining and shopping area in the vicinity of the famous theme parks, Assistant district Attorney of the V. S. James Mandolfo said.
Salman’s lawyer, Linda Moreno, argued in opening statements last week that some of the claims that are contradicted by cell phone records and other evidence. She said Mateen decided to go to the Heart rate at the last minute.
“Omar Mateen did not know where he was going that night,” she said. “And if he did not know, how would his wife know?”
