OAKLAND, Calif. -- (KRON) -- The wife of Pulse nightclub shooter Omar Mateen is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday in Oakland.

Noor Salman was arrested in the Bay Area Monday and has been charged with aiding and abetting Mateen’s attack in Orlando that killed 49 people.

Salman will make an initial appearance at the federal courthouse in Oakland at 9:30 a.m. She is facing charges in Florida of attempted provision and provision of material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and obstruction of justice.

Salman moved to the San Francisco area after her husband, Omar Mateen, was killed in a shootout with SWAT team members during the June 12 massacre at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando.

He was the only shooter, and by the time a three-hour standoff between Mateen and law enforcement had ended, 49 patrons were killed and another 53 people required hospitalization.

Mateen pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group during the standoff.
