AP sources: 2nd woman charged in 'Jihad Jane' case

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Two law enforcement officials say federal prosecutors are bringing an American woman back from Ireland to face terror charges.

Jamie Paulin-Ramirez, originally from Colorado, had recently been detained in Ireland in connection to an alleged plot to kill a Swedish cartoonist whose drawing offended many Muslims.

A Pennsylvania woman, Colleen LaRose, already faces charges she pushed the plot in Internet conversations, sometimes using the screen name 'Jihad Jane.'

Paulin-Ramirez was never formally charged in Ireland in the case.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case.
