LOS ANGELES, Ca — The brother of one of the San Bernardino terrorists is in jail Thursday with two other people, federal prosecutors say.

31-year-old Syed Raheel Farook is the brother of Syed Rizwan Farook. Syed Raheel was arrested along with his wife and her sister after a federal grand jury indicted the trio in a marriage fraud conspiracy.

Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife carried out the December attack on a gathering of San Bernardino County environmental health workers. In addition to those killed, 22 were wounded.

The shooters died in a gunbattle with police.
