Deal may be near for Colorado woman accused of aiding Islamist insurgents

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 08/06/2014 - 08:56
By Keith Coffman DENVER (Reuters) - U.S. prosecutors and lawyers defending a Colorado woman accused of providing material support to Islamist militants fighting the governments of Syria and Iraq may be close to resolving the case, court records show. Shannon Maureen Conley, born in 1996, has been in federal custody since she was arrested in April for allegedly preparing to join the Sunni Muslim insurgent group the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, also known as ISIL or ISIS, which has shortened its name to "Islamic State." In a motion filed in U.S District Court in Denver last week, federal public defender Robert Pepin said he is in "continuing discussions" with prosecutors concerning a potential deal in the criminal case against the suburban Denver woman. Conley was arrested by federal agents at Denver International Airport as she was about to board a plane bound for Germany. Islamic State is an al Qaeda offshoot that wants to recreate a medieval-style caliphate from the Mediterranean to the Gulf and deems Shi'ite Muslims to be heretics deserving death.
