Coronel Aispuro, a 31-year-old former beauty queen, was a regular participant in her husband's high profile New York trial two years ago during which he was convicted of trafficking tons of drugs to the United States.
She has been charged by the US Department of Justice with conspiracy to import drugs such as heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine into the US and is expected to appear in court in Washington later Tuesday.
