A former neighbour accused of supplying weapons to the couple who killed 14 people in California this month has been indicted by a federal grand jury on terror-related charges.
Enrique Marquez, 24, is accused of conspiring with San Bernardio gunman Syed Rizwan Farook in 2011 and 2012 to support a terrorist attack that was never carried out, as well as making false statements to federal authorities.
Farook, 28, and his wife Tashfeen Malik, 27, killed 14 people and injured 21 others in an attack on an office Christmas party on December 2.
Prosecutors have said there is no evidence Marquez knew about the San Bernardino attack, but Marquez is accused of buying two of the guns that were used in the shooting rampage.
He is charged with conspiring to provide material support to terrorists; two counts of making a false statement regarding the guns; and one count each of marriage fraud and making false statements in relation to an alleged sham marriage to a distant relative of Farook's.
