(CNN)The wife of Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, who was a regular fixture at his federal trial, will plead guilty Thursday to being a "minimal participant" in helping her husband run his drug empire, The New York Times reported.

Coronel was a regular fixture at Guzman's 2019 Brooklyn federal trial, appearing nearly every day for the two-month-long trial.

Guzman, who formerly ran the Sinaloa drug cartel, was convicted on 10 counts including engaging in a continuing criminal enterprise, conspiracy to launder narcotics proceeds, international distribution of cocaine, heroin, marijuana and other drugs, and use of firearms.

In Guzman's trial, a cooperating witness testified that Coronel and others worked together to coordinate details of Guzman's last escape from prison in Mexico and that Coronel would often relay messages from Guzman in prison to others.
