A relative of the widow of the Orlando nightclub shooter calls her a "victim" and declares she was no part of the massacre at the club.

FOX's Gurnal Scott with the story:

Noor Salman made her first court appearance in California today after the FBI arrested her Monday. The feds believe she aided her husband Omar Mateen who killed 49 people at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando last June before being killed in a shootout with police.

But Al Salman, the uncle of Noor Salman says his niece knew nothing of neither Mateen's radicalization nor his deadly plans:

(Salman) "The only thing she knows about him is that he's abuser. That what she knows. He's abuser and control person."

Noor Salman will return to court tomorrow. A judge is expected to appoint a lawyer for her and set her extradition to Florida to face charges.
