Federal prosecutors on Tuesday filed a lawsuit that would allow them to seize the life insurance policies held by one of the San Bernardino shooters, NBC News reported.
The two policies, owned by Syed Rizwan Farook, were worth a total of $275,000. Farook's mother, Rafia Farook, was listed as the beneficiary.
Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, died in a shootout with authorities after the Dec. 2, 2015, terror attack at the Inland Resource Center that left 14 people dead.

Under federal law, assets derived from terrorism are subject to forfeiture. A federal judge must approve an application before the government can seize the money.
