Defense team for Pulse shooter's widow receives warning

- A federal judge has warned the legal team defending the widow of the Pulse nightclub shooter not to miss any more court deadlines.

U.S. District Court Judge Paul G. Byron decided Thursday not to sanction lawyers defending Noor Salman after they explained why they missed an Aug. 1 deadline to present expert witnesses.

Attorney Mark Horwitz told the judge they needed more information about the government's mental health expert before their expert could give his opinion.

Salman remains jailed pending a March 2018 trial on charges of helping her husband Omar Mateen before he committed mass murder and obstructing justice thereafter.

She wore a yellow T-shirt, green sweats and ankle shackles in the courtroom, and didn't speak during the hearing.
