    Widow of Pulse Shooter Returning to Face Charges in Florida

    NBC 6's Julia Bagg has the latest after Noor Salman waived her right to extradition and will be sent to face charges in Orlando.

    (Published Wednesday, April 5, 2017)

    Defense attorneys say video, photos and other evidence from the Pulse nightclub attack should not be shown to jurors during the upcoming federal trial of the shooter's widow.

    Noor Salman faces charges of aiding a terrorist organization and obstruction of justice.

    During a hearing Thursday in Orlando, attorneys for the 31-year-old Salman objected to showing the jury graphic evidence from the June 12, 2016, shooting that killed 49. Attorney Charles Swift said the police body camera footage would be prejudicial to the jury.

    The Orlando Sentinel reports prosecutors must prove Salman aided the terrorist organization that her husband pledged allegiance to during phone conversations with police as the nightclub attack was underway.

    Judge Paul Byron said he'll make a ruling before the trial, scheduled for March 1.
