Pulse Shooter's Wife Seeking Charge Dismissal From Judge

The wife of Omar Mateen, the gunman who opened fire at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando just over one year ago, is asking a judge to dismiss one of the counts she's facing.

Noor Salman is arguing that an obstruction charge against her was filed in the wrong venue. 

The motion requesting the charge to be dropped was filed Monday as residents in Florida and beyond commemorated the one-year mark of the massacre that left 49 patrons dead at the Pulse nightclub in the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

Her husband pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group during the massacre before police killed him in a shootout.

Salman was charged with aiding her husband and obstruction for allegedly misleading investigators.
