Salman Trial Continues, Jurors See Graphic Video

(Orlando, FL)  –  The trial of Noor Salman, the widow of the shooter who killed 49 people at Pulse nightclub, continues in Florida today.  Prosecutors are looking to prove Salman knew about Omar Mateen’s plans, and helped him prepare for the shooting.  On Thursday, jurors watched graphic video of the shooting recorded by police body cameras and the nightclub’s surveillance system.  Earlier this week, an FBI agent testified that Salman told him her husband did not hate members of the LGBT community, before the agent brought the matter up.  A Fort Pierce Police lieutenant added that Salman mentioned her husband’s guns before being asked about them.
Salman is reported to have wept while the graphic footage played in the courtroom. Outside, Salman’s cousin Susan Adeih told reporters she hoped Omar would “burn in hell.”  Salman pled not guilty to charges of aiding and supporting a foreign terrorist organization.  If convicted, she could face life in prison.
