They asked several questions, including about the statement Salman made to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. "I wish I had been more truthful", she wrote in the statement, which was shown in court.
Indeed, the evidence, as The Intercept documented previously, is very clear that the first time Mateen ever went to Pulse was to attack it, after simply searching Google for "nightclubs downtown Orlando". She was abused by her husband, who cheated on her with other women and concealed much of his life from her, they said.
Salman's attorneys argued she was not an accomplice in the case, but a victim. Omar Mateen is dead.
In addition, 50-year-old protester and former Pulse frequenter Louis Morales said, while taking part in a demonstration outside of the former nightclub, "She may not be guilty, but she's not innocent".
When asked how Noor has been doing, her mother said the shooting and her possible life sentence had worn her daughter down.
Defense attorney Linda Moreno also expressed admiration for the victims' families and survivors.
"It's a frightful, random, senseless killing by a monster", Swift said during closing arguments. They said they were disappointed with the verdict but respect the decision.
"Noor Salman should never have been on trial", said Ahmed Bedier of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
"This case is about what she knew and what she did", Assistant US Attorney Sara Sweeney said.
Fellow defense attorney Charles Swift said he was impressed with the jury's attentiveness and the seriousness that they showed during the trial. "Her only sin is she married a monster". They said Salman is not capable of being "calculating", "deceptive" or "able to connect the dots".
The defense maintained that Salman was coerced into making statements during a 16-hour interrogation, which was not recorded by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
"Nothing harmful would come out of her", a friend of Salman's who was identified only as Ms. Ahmed told jurors, according to CNN affiliate WKGM. Authorities had questioned her for 11 hours.
The revelation threatened to upend the case against Salman, but the judge denied the motion, saying it was not relevant.
Offering an especially chilling detail, Ms. Sweeney suggested that Mr. Mateen bought a baby carriage and doll at a Walmart the night before the massacre so that he could hide his AR-15 assault rifle and draw no suspicion as he walked toward what prosecutors believe was his intended target, the Disney Springs shopping and entertainment complex, formerly known as Downtown Disney.
"On this Good Friday, the family wants to say we're very sorry for the family members and friends of the 49 victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting and also the survivors of that frightful attack", a representative from Salman's family said.
