The wife of a late senior Islamic State leader has been charged in the U.S. in the death of American hostage Kayla Mueller, officials said Monday.

Mueller, who was 26 years old at the time of her death, traveled to Syria in 2013 on a humanitarian mission and was taken captive, where she was held hostage for 18 months. On Feb. 6, 2015, ISIS reported Mueller had been killed in a Jordanian air strike.
