A federal judge on Wednesday ordered documents unsealed in the case against 19-year-old Shannon Maureen Conley, who was charged with conspiring to help a foreign terrorist organization. The documents say that when agents arrested her at Denver International Airport, she told them she planned to fly to Turkey and then travel to Syria to meet a suitor she met online.
