ORLANDO, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – After nearly two weeks of courtroom testimony, the prosecution rested its case in the Noor Salman trial Friday. The day came to a dramatic end when U.S. District Judge Paul Byron chided prosecutors for not revealing earlier that there was no evidence that showed the widow of the Pulse shooter was with her husband Omar, driving around the scene for 20 minutes. That allegation was one of the first pieces of information that an FBI agent claimed they knew within days after the Pulse nightclub shooting that took 49 lives last year. The judge used that information to deny her bond.
Salman’s defense attorneys have filed a motion to dismiss the case, which Judge Byron has denied. The jury returns Monday to hear more testimony.
