ORLANDO, Florida. – Jurors are hearing emotional testimony during the trial of the widow of a man who shot and killed 49 people at a Florida nightclub.
The process of the 31-year-old Noor Salman started Wednesday in Orlando.
On the first day of the trial, jurors listened to a testimony that is hidden under a dead body for three hours during the recordings and watched a video, taken during the filming by a survivor in the club.
The trial will continue on Thursday.
Federal prosecutors are trying to link Salman to the actions of her husband, Omar Mateen. He was killed by the police in the hours after the killing of 49 people in June 2016 at the gay club. Prosecutors said he was motivated by Islamic terrorism.
Assistant district Attorney of the V. S. James Mandolfo says the trial hinges on “what the defendant knew.”
