Noor Salman, the wife of Orlando nightclub killer Omar Mateen, could be charged in the deaths of the 49 people he massacred.

“I know that she is the focus of the investigation. I know that they are considering charges against her,” Rep. Peter King told the New York Post. “She could be charged with being a co-conspirator to murdering 49 people.”

Evidence is mounting that she, at least, knew he might have been the attacker while the massacre was going on.

Mateen and Salman exchanged text messages during the rampage, a law enforcement source with knowledge of the situation, told CNN.

“Where are you?” she texted him around 2:30 a.m.

“Do you see what’s happening?” he replied.

After she said “no” he responded with ” love you babe.”

That was the end of the text message exchanges but she tried calling Mateen several times after that.

“We don’t know whether she was involved and knew about the purchase of the guns, which took place, by the way, only about a week before the attack,” Maine Sen. Angus King told CNN. “But she definitely is, I guess you would say, a person of interest right now and appears to be cooperating and can provide us with some important information on who this guy is, what his motivations were and what his plans were.”’
