A federal judge Tuesday morning denied bail for the wife of Orlando nightclub shooter Omar Mateen, and ordered her to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.

FBI agents arrested Noor Salman at her mother's home in Contra Costa County last month.

The government says Salman helped her husband plan the attack, which left 49 people dead.

Salman's family says she didn't know what happened until after the shooting.
