QUAKERTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A boyfriend of the American woman charged in a foreign terrorism plot says she never showed any Muslim or other religious leanings.

Kurt Gorman of suburban Philadelphia says Colleen LaRose mostly spent her days at their Pennsburg apartment.

Federal officials charge that she met up with violent jihadists online under the name "JihadJane." An indictment issued Tuesday says she used the Internet to conspire with them to kill a Swedish artist.

Authorities say she also stole Gorman's U.S. passport to give it to a male co-conspirator.

Gorman says he spent five years with LaRose and saw no violent tendencies. He says he came home one day last summer and found her
gone.

Gorman says he's still shocked by her arrest.
