The wife of Omar Mateen, the man who carried out the deadly Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando in June, was arrested Monday.

Noor Salman was arrested at her home outside San Francisco. Prosecutors had long considered charges against Salman in the attack that killed 49 people and injured dozens more. 

Salman was charged with obstruction, The New York Times reports.  Investigators believe she did not tell the truth about what she knew of her husband's plans. She is expected to appear in court Tuesday. 

After the shooting, a grand jury was assigned to determine whether Salman would be charged. Officials said at the time that this decision may take a while

Salman told investigators her husband spoke about his interest in a jihadist attack prior to the shooting in Orlando, a law enforcement official told CNN on Tuesday. However, she told FBI agents she tried to dissuade him from doing anything violent and denied knowing about his plot to shoot up the nightclub.
