The Justice Department has charged the Iraqi widow of an ISIS leader with a role in the death of U.S. aid worker Kayla Mueller. Nisreen Assad Ibrahim Bahar, who is currently in Iraqi custody, is accused of helping hold Mueller hostage at a home where Mueller was repeatedly raped by ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Mueller was confirmed killed last year in what ISIS said was a coalition airstrike in Syria.
