A Pennsylvania woman was arrested -- and lost her marriage -- for her role in the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection.
Jennifer Marie Heinl was taken into custody Thursday and charged with violent entry, disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds and other felonies in connection with the riot, which left one police officer and four Donald Trump supporters dead, reported WPXI-TV.
Her husband Mike Heinl, a Shaler police detective and a member of the FBI's violent crime task force unit in Pittsburgh, filed for divorce last month and was on duty at the time of the insurrection, which his department chief said he did not support.
Court documents show Jennifer Heinl was associated with Kenneth Grayson, a Bridgeville man charged in January with crimes related to the riot, and a the FBI executed a search warrant that revealed Facebook messages between the pair from Nov. 12 to Jan. 11 discussing travel arrangements to Washington, D.C.
The 55-year-old Jennifer Heinl told investigators that she had gone to Washington alone on Jan. 5 and returned the next day, and she claimed she did not go inside the Capitol and only ran into Grayson outside the federal building.
However, photos presented in evidence show Heinl and Grayson standing together in the Capitol Rotunda, and others show her in and around the building.
Grayson has ties to the right-wing Proud Boys paramilitary group and the Qanon conspiracy movement, and he boasted of beating up "commies" at a November rally for Trump in Washington and sent messages after the insurrection that he wanted to kill Joe Biden.
"He harbors continued aspirations of violence" said assistant U.S. Attorney Soo Song. "He would do it again, in his own words."
Heinl was released on a $10,000 unsecured bond.
