Closing Arguments In Noor Salman's Case Begin Today

Closing statements are expected to begin in the trial of the Pulse nightclub shooter's widow, who is accused of helping her husband plan the June 2016 mass shooting.

Government prosecutors and defense attorneys will begin giving closing statements Wednesday morning in the federal trial of Noor Salman, the 31-year-old mother accused of aiding her husband in the Pulse nightclub attack in Orlando.

Prosecutors have said Salman: 

  • Knew Omar Mateen was buying ammunition
  • Helped him spend money before the attack 
  • Knew about his plan when he left home the night he killed 49 people

Defense attorneys describe Salman as a simple woman with a low IQ who was abused by her husband, and who didn't know of his plans because he concealed much of his life from her.
