Emma Coronel Esboro, 31, was arrested at Dulles International Airport in Northern Virginia, and is expected to appear in federal court in Washington on Tuesday. She had regularly attended her husband’s court sessions two years ago.
Coronel’s lawyer could not be identified. It was not clear why it was located in the Washington area. Coronel holds dual American and Mexican nationalities.
Coronel’s arrest came two years after the trial of Guzman, 63, in Brooklyn, where he was convicted of smuggling tons of drugs into the United States while he was the leader of the Sinaloa Gang..
