According to the superseding indictment, Ramirez exchanged e-mail messages with LaRose during the summer of 2009, in which LaRose invited Ramirez to join her in Europe to attend a "training camp."
Ramirez is charged with accepting the invitation and asking to bring along her minor son. On Sept. 12, Ramirez traveled to Europe with her son with the intent to live and train with jihadists.
The day she arrived in Europe, the indictment alleges, Ramirez married an unindicted co-conspirator whom she had never before met in person.
Ramirez' husband is reported to be the alleged leader of the terrorist plot, Algerian Ali Charaf Damache.
Jihad Jane was arrested months ago. Ramirez was arrested today after voluntarily flying back to Pennsylvania from overseas.
