Emma Coronel Aispuro (far left), wife of Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán, is facing several charges for her alleged involvement in the Sinaloa Cartel's drug trafficking as her husband sits in a U.S. prison.

The wife of one of the world's most notorious drug kingpins, Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán, was arrested Monday for allegedly helping her husband run his multi-billion dollar international drug cartel and for aiding in his 2015 escape from a Mexican prison.

Emma Coronel Aispuro, 31, a California-born, dual U.S.-Mexican citizen, was arrested Monday at Washington Dulles International Airport. She faces charges for participating in a conspiracy to distribute cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin and marijuana for importation into the U.S., according to the Justice Department.

Investigators also believe Coronel conspired with others to assist Guzmán in his July 11, 2015 escape from Altiplano prison in Mexico and tried to organize a second escape from jail a year later.
