A woman was arrested after lying about her role in a terrorist bombing in Israel, forty years ago, according to police reports in Illinois.

A Chicago woman of Palestinian origin was arrested on Tuesday, on charges of immigration fraud for allegedly lying about her conviction for a fatal attack in Israel.

According to the federal indictment, Rasmieh Yousef Odeh, 66, lied on immigration documents when she came to the U.S. from Jordan in 1995. She became a naturalized citizen of the U.S. in 2004.

In her first appearance in court in Chicago, Odeh seemed confused at times and leaned over to talk to a lawyer.

The indictment was handed down in Detroit where at least part of her Naturalization process was conducted. Odeh moved to the Chicago area soon after gaining citizenship in Detroit in 2004.

Prosecutors said she was arrested on Tuesday morning, at her home in Evergreen Park, southwest of Chicago.

If convicted of immigration fraud, Odeh could face up to 10 years in U.S. prison. She could also be stripped of her U.S. citizenship.

According to the indictment, Odeh was arrested for a 1969 attack in which bombs were planted in a supermarket in Jerusalem. One of the two bombs exploded in the supermarket, killing two people and wounding several others. Israeli officials said the attacks were planned by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

An Israeli military court sentenced her to life imprisonment in 1970, but was released 10 years later in a prisoner exchange, when Israel released 76 prisoners in exchange for a captured Israeli soldier in Lebanon.

U.S. Judge Michael Mason ordered Odeh to remain in custody.
