ORLANDO, Fla. (WESH) — The wife of Pulse gunman Omar Mateen will be extradited from California to Florida to face charges.

Federal court documents obtained by WESH 2 News show that Noor Salman has waived a hearing in California where she was going to fight extradition.

Salman had been scheduled to appear in court for the hearing on Monday.

Salman will be brought back to Orlando and will appear in court to face charges of obstructing justice and providing support to a terrorist.

It is unclear when she will be moved from California to Florida. The U.S. Marshal’s office will transport Salman back to Central Florida.
