LOS ANGELES (AP) — Federal prosecutors say three people connected to one of the San Bernardino shooters have been arrested in a marriage fraud conspiracy.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office said Thursday that those arrested include the brother and sister-in-law of shooter Syed Rizwan Farook. The third person arrested is the wife of Enrique Marquez Jr., a friend of Farook’s who has been charged for his alleged role in aiding the violence.
The two women arrested are Russian immigrants.
Prosecutors say the three participated in a marriage fraud conspiracy that involved lying under oath to obtain immigration benefits.
Attorneys representing the Farook family didn’t immediately return calls for comment.
