(CNN)The wife of drug kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman Loera was arrested Monday in Virginia on charges related to her alleged involvement in international drug trafficking, the Justice Department announced.

Prosecutors said Coronel conspired with others to assist her husband in his July 11, 2015, escape from a prison in Mexico.

After Guzman was rearrested in Mexico in January 2016, his wife is alleged to have engaged in planning yet another prison escape before he was extradited to the United States, officials said.

Jeffrey Lichtman and Mariel Colon told CNN they are representing Coronel.

"We're just trying to get the full scope of the government allegations at this time," said Colon.

Lichtman told CNN he had no comment.
