Orlando nightclub gunman's widow to be released on bail

U.S. Magistrate Judge Donna Ryu set $500,000 bond Wednesday for 31-year-old Noor Salman, who has pleaded "not guilty" to charges of aiding and abetting her late husband, Omar Mateen, in the June 2016 attack.

Another attorney for Salman, Charles Swift, questioned the statements that she made to the Federal Bureau of Investigation without a lawyer present, and told ABC News that Salman "had no foreknowledge nor could she predict what Omar Mateen meant to do that tragic night". "I find that the government has not established by clear and convincing evidence that Ms. Salman presents a danger to the community", Ryu said.

In a statement Orlando's Police Chief John Mina said he was "disappointed" by the ruling to free Salman, while some survivors have also expressed shock over the move.

The film was named Best Feature and its stars were presented with the Robert Altman Award for outstanding ensemble. Kennedy's assassination through the eyes of former first lady Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, also won nothing.

Salman's husband, Omar Mateen, was killed in a shootout with police after he took hostages during a three-hour standoff at the Pulse nightclub and carried out the deadliest mass shooting in modern United States history. She is formally accused of helping Mateen provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization. Prosecutors also say that they ran up tens of thousands in credit card debt before the massacre and changed Salman to the beneficiary of Mateen's bank account. The judge added that the defendant was not a flight risk and would wear an electronic ankle monitor while effectively remaining under house arrest at her uncle's home in northern California. A date for the trial has not been scheduled yet.

The judge said that the majority of the government's case against Salman relies on alleged statements she made during an 18-hour interrogation by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents immediately after the attack.

Prosecutors have argued that Salman admitted to investigators that she helped her husband case the Pulse nightclub and had driven him to the site sometime before the attack.

The judge found the weight of the evidence by the government as "debatable" and "vulnerable" to fact. She faces life in prison if she is convicted.

But she agreed to hold the decision for two days as prosecutors appeal. Among the purchases was an $8,000 diamond ring for Salman.

However, Salman won't be immediately released.
