ORLANDO, Fla. (WTXL) - Jury selection began Thursday for the widow of the Pulse nightclub gunman.

Noor Salman is facing federal charges for the June 2016 attack.

Her husband, Omar Mateen, killed 49 people at the Orlando nightclub before he was fatally shot.

The government accuses Salman of providing terroristic information to Mateen.

The trial will likely last all month.

If Salman is convicted, she could spend the rest of her life behind bars.
