Tsarnaev widow Katherine Russell, 24. Experts say female DNA on bomb shards doesn't guarantee they had the help of a woman. Instead, the DNA could have come from store clerks who sold the materials to the brothers, they said.

Tsarnaev family received $100G in benefits

Tuesday, April 30, 2013
By:Chris Cassidy


The Tsarnaev family, including the suspected terrorists and their parents, benefited from more than $100,000 in taxpayer-funded assistance — a bonanza ranging from cash and food stamps to Section 8 housing from 2002 to 2012, the Herald has learned.

“The breadth of the benefits the family was receiving was stunning,” said a person with knowledge of documents handed over to a legislative committee yesterday.

The state has handed over more than 500 documents to the 11-member House Post Audit and Oversight Committee, which yesterday met for the first time and plans to call in officials from the Department of Transitional Assistance to testify.

Report: Saudi Arabia warned U.S. in writing about Tamerlan Tsarnaev

Posted: May 01, 2013 5:28 AM CDT
Updated: May 01, 2013 7:05 AM CDT


(VIDEO)

(MyFoxBoston.com) – A report in the Daily Mail claims the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia warned the U.S. in writing about Boston Marathon Bomber No. 1 Tamerlan Tsarnaev and a planned explosive attack on a major U.S. city.

The Saudi official also said Tamerlan was denied an entry visa into Saudi Arabia when he was trying to make a pilgrimage to Mecca in 2011 because he was seen as a potential jihadis.

Three men charged with undermining Boston bombing probe

(Reuters) - U.S. authorities on Wednesday charged three men with interfering with the investigation of the Boston Marathon bombing, saying they hid fireworks and a backpack belonging to one of the suspected bombers as a manhunt was under way.

The three, two students from Kazakhstan and a U.S. citizen, were described as college friends of surviving bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19. They were not charged with direct involvement in the April 15 marathon bombings, which killed three people and injured 264.

~Snipped~

Authorities charged the two Kazakhs, Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev, both 19, with conspiring to obstruct justice by disposing of a backpack containing fireworks they found in Tsarnaev's dorm room. The third man, Robel Phillipos, also 19, was charged with making false statements to investigators.

(NECN) - One of the three men charged in connection with the Boston Marathon bombings is accused of lying to investigators about what he knew after the bombings.

Neighbors and friends though say 18-year-old Robel Phillipos of Cambridge, Mass. is a quiet kid, whom they couldn't see doing that.

"The person I know, I know he's going to be scared, to be honest, because he's just like a quiet person. He was trying to be successful, focused on school," said friend Ron Tecle.

Widow of Boston bomber says she doesn't want his body - but will his family come to U.S. to claim it?

Tamerlan Tsarnaev's body has been at medical examiner's office since death
Wife agreed to release the body which is in Massachusetts
Cause of death will not be made public until his remains are claimed
Parents are in Russia, but he has relatives in the U.S.


By JILL REILLY

PUBLISHED: 01:58 EST, 1 May 2013 | UPDATED: 11:57 EST, 1 May 2013


The uncle of the deceased Boston Marathon bombing suspect can claim his body now that his widow has agreed to release it - but other members of the family risk arrest if they try to claim it.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev's body has been at the medical examiner's office in Massachusetts since he died after a gunfight with authorities more than a week ago.

Amato DeLuca, the Rhode Island attorney for his widow, Katherine Russell, said in a statement that his client had just learned that the medical examiner was ready to release Tsarnaev's body and that she wants it released to the Tsarnaev family.

Remains of Boston Marathon Bombing Suspect Claimed

By BRIDGET MURPHY Associated Press
BOSTON May 3, 2013 (AP)


The body of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was the subject of a massive manhunt and died after a gunbattle with police, was claimed on Thursday.

Department of Public Safety spokesman Terrel Harris said a funeral home retained by Tsarnaev's family picked up the 26-year-old's remains. He said he had no more information about plans for the remains.

The medical examiner determined Tsarnaev's cause of death on Monday, but officials said it wouldn't become public until his remains were released and a death certificate was filed. It was unclear on Thursday evening whether the death certificate had been filed.

Boston bombing suspects had planned July 4 attack, official says

By Ross Kerber, Jim Finkle and Mark Hosenball
BOSTON/WASHINGTON | Fri May 3, 2013 3:09am BST


BOSTON/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The two brothers suspected of carrying out the deadly attacks on the Boston Marathon had originally planned to set off their bombs on July 4, a law enforcement official said.

The official said the suspects, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, advanced the date of their attack because they completed building bombs more quickly then they originally anticipated. The official declined to be identified and did not offer more details.

DNA on Boston bomb does not match suspect's wife, investigators say

This 2007 booking photo released by Warwick, R.I., police shows Katherine Russell, arrested on shoplifting charges there. Charges were later dismissed. Russell is the widow of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings.


By Pete Williams and Erin McClam, NBC News

DNA found on a fragment of one of the Boston Marathon bombs does not match DNA taken earlier this week from Katherine Russell, the widow of the dead suspect in the attack, but she remains under scrutiny, investigators told NBC News.

Investigators said they still have many questions for Russell because they believe the bombs were assembled at the home she shared with her husband, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was killed in a firefight with suburban Boston police April 19.

Boston bomb suspect died of gunshots, blunt trauma

Updated: Fri, 03 May 2013 18:35:04 GMT | By Steve Leblanc And Bob Salsberg, The Associated Press, thecanadianpress.com

BOSTON - A suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings died from gunshot wounds and blunt trauma to his head and torso, a funeral director said Friday.

Worcester funeral home owner Peter Stefan has 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev's body and read details from his death certificate. The certificate cites Tsarnaev's "gunshot wounds of torso and extremities" and lists the time of his death as 1:35 a.m. on April 19, four days after the deadly bombing, Stefan said.

Tsarnaev died after a gunfight with authorities who had launched a massive manhunt for him and his brother, ethnic Chechens from Russia who came to the United States about a decade ago. Police have said he ran out of ammunition before his younger brother dragged his body under a vehicle while fleeing.

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — The uncle of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev arrived in Massachusetts on Sunday to arrange for his burial, saying he understands that "no one wants to associate their names with such evil events."

~Snipped~

Funeral director Peter Stefan said he hasn't been able to find a cemetery in Massachusetts willing to take the body. He said he plans to ask the city of Cambridge, where Tsarnaev lived, to provide a burial plot, and if Cambridge turns him down, he will seek help from state officials.

Cambridge City Manager Robert Healy said in a statement Sunday there has been no formal application for a burial permit or purchase of a cemetery plot. He said he is urging Tsarnaev's family and the funeral director who has the body not to request a burial permit for the city-owned Cambridge Cemetery.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev Won't Be Allowed to be Buried in Cambridge

By ALYSSA NEWCOMB
May 5, 2013





The funeral director in charge of finding a city with a cemetery willing to bury Tamerlan Tsarnaev can cross Cambridge, Mass., off his list.

While there has been no formal application for a burial permit there, Cambridge City Manager Robert Healey said Tsarnaev wasn't welcome to be buried in the American city he called home.

"I have determined that it is not in the best interest of peace within the city to execute a cemetery deed for a plot within the Cambridge Cemetery for the body of Tamerlan Tsarnaev," Healey said today in a statement.

Gelzinis: Tamerlan Tsarnaev's burial a diplomatic issue

Sunday, May 5, 2013
By: Peter Gelzinis

Peter Stefan looks too old and too tired to be wrestling with the question of where to bury Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the alleged architect of the Boston Marathon bombings.

~Snipped~

“I’m not going to hold (Tsarnaev’s body) too long,” Stefan told the Herald. “The federal government is involved in this. If need be, I will request help from them.”

The “federal government” he’s talking about is not the FBI. They’re too busy trying to figure out what Tamerlan Tsarnaev was all about while he was alive.

The decision of where to bury this 26-year-old Chechen emigre, who journeyed back to the Russian Caucasus of his birth not long before he became infamous, is a diplomatic issue.

The FBI returned today to search the Tsarnaev family’s Cambridge home, as the uncle of Boston Marathon bombing suspects Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev visited a Worcester funeral home where the older brother’s body lies awaiting a funeral.

“We are conducting court-authorized law enforcement activity as part of our ongoing investigation into the Marathon Bombings,” FBI Boston spokeswoman Katherine Gulotta said. “Because the matter is pending, we aren’t able to discuss specific aspects of the case.”

The apartment house’s landlord, Joanne Burnette, confirmed agents were there with a search warrant, but declined to say if they told her what they want.

Victims in Boston Marathon Bombings Turn to Crowdfunding for Support

By JENNIFER PRESTON and CHRISTINE HAUSER

May 6, 2013, 11:01 pm




The GiveForward fundraising page for Brittany Loring, 29, who was seriously injured in the bombings at the Boston Marathon.

It was Brittany Loring’s 29th birthday. She and a fellow graduate student at Boston College, Liza Cherney, were making their way to the finish line of the Boston Marathon to meet a runner when the two bombs exploded.

“I fell to the ground,” Ms. Loring recalled in an interview on Monday. “My thought was I had to get out of there. The moment I could stand up, I ran around the corner, onto Exeter. Then I saw myself in the reflection of a store window. I noticed I was bleeding and that I needed help.”

Boston Marathon bomb suspect's friend to be released on bail

Gary Strauss and Doug Stanglin, USA TODAY

6:36 p.m. EDT May 6, 2013


Robel Phillipos, 19, is accused of lying to investigators about visiting Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's dorm room.

Robel Phillipos - charged with lying to federal authorities investigating the Boston Marathon bombing case to protect suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev - can be freed on bail, a judge ruled Monday.

Under a joint motion by federal prosecutors and Phillipos' attorney, U.S. Magistrate Judge Marianne Bowler ordered Phillipos, 19, released from jail, where he's been held since his May 1 arrest. He'll be confined to his mother's home and be required to wear an electronic monitoring device 24/7 while he awaits trial. He'll also have to post a $100,000 bond. It was not immediately clear when Phillipos would be released.

Boston Marathon bombing: Body of Tamerlan Tsarnaev could be buried in Denver-area cemetery

By The Associated Press
Posted: 05/06/2013 05:43:47 PM PDT
Updated: 05/06/2013 06:17:14 PM PDT


BOSTON — As the body of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, one of the two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings, lay in a Worcester, Mass., funeral home for a fourth day, Gov. Deval Patrick said Monday that it was up to the family, not the state, to resolve where the burial would take place.

"First of all, this isn't a state or a federal issue — it's the family's issue," he told reporters in New Bedford, Mass. "And the family has some options. I assume they will make a decision soon. I hope they do."

Patrick declined to answer when asked if he would oppose Tsarnaev's burial in Massachusetts. But Rep. Edward J. Markey, the Democratic candidate for the Senate seat that John Kerry vacated when he became secretary of state, said he would oppose such a burial.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev in limbo: Boston bomber’s body still unburied

Published: May 7, 2013

The Worcester funeral home caring for the body of accused terrorist Tamerlan Tsarnaev has stopped releasing information on when and where the alleged Boston Marathon bomber will be buried.

A woman who answered the phone at the Graham, Putnam and Mahoney Funeral Parlors said today that funeral director Peter Stefan and his staff has been advised not to conduct any more interviews.

~Snipped~

The government has refused to get involved in the burial plans, despite Stefan’s trouble locating a cemetery that will accept Tsarnaev’s body. Protesters have also staked out the funeral home, calling for deportation of the remains.

Protest hits Tamerlan Tsarnaev grave

Tuesday, May 14, 2013
By: Antonio Planas


The Virginia grave of accused marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev was targeted by protesters yesterday, a local law enforcement official said.

Caroline County Sheriff Tony Lippa said a “couple of handfuls” of people demonstrated at the entrance of the Al-Barzakh Cemetery in Doswell, Va., where Tsarnaev was buried last Thursday after his body was secretly moved from a Worcester funeral home.

Lippa said the protesters were peaceful and left after about 90 minutes. His deputies didn’t issue any arrests or citations.

Boston bombings suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev left note in boat he hid in, sources say

May 16, 2013 7:06 AM



(CBS News) Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev left claiming responsibility for the April 13 attack on the Boston Marathon, reports CBS News senior correspondent John Miller.

Sources tell Miller that Tsarnaev wrote the note in the boat he was hiding in as police pursued him, and as he bled from gunshot wounds sustained in an earlier shootout between police and his older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

The note, scrawled with a pen on the interior wall of the cabin, said the bombings were retribution for U.S. military action in Afghanistan and Iraq, and called the Boston victims collateral damage in the same way Muslims have been in the American-led wars. "When you attack one Muslim, you attack all Muslims," the note added.

FBI Agent Kills Man After Questioning Him About the Boston Marathon Bombing

By Dashiell Bennett | The Atlantic Wire

May 22, 2013



An FBI special agent shot and killed a man in Orlando, Florida, on Wednesday morning, just hours after he was interrogated about the Boston Marathon bombings. The man, who was identified as 27-year-old Ibragim Todashev, was reportedly an acquaintance of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who he met through the world of mixed martial arts. Like Tsarnaev, he was Chechen-born Muslim, but only met Tsarnaev after moving to the United States. Todashev was shot shortly after midnight at an apartment complex about 10 miles from Walt Disney World.

The FBI only said that an agent "encountered the suspect while conducting official duties. The suspect is deceased," but has not offered any other details.

Boston Bombing Suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Speaks in Federal Court (Video)

December 18, 2014

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev appeared in court under heavy security Thursday ahead of his trial next month for the bombing of the Boston Marathon, telling the judge he was satisfied with his lawyers.

Tsarnaev, wearing gray pants, a black sweater-vest and a tie, was led in handcuffs into a federal courthouse in Boston for a pretrial hearing. It was his first appearance since July 2013.

Asked by the judge whether he had been kept up to speed on the court proceedings, Tsarnaev answered: "Yes, Your Honor." Asked whether his lawyers were representing him adequately, he said, "They are."

Accused Boston Marathon bomber appears in court for first time since 2013 (Video)

The Associated Press
Published December 18, 2014

BOSTON –  Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev returned to court Thursday for the first time since he was arraigned in July 2013.

Security was tight at the federal courthouse in Boston for the final pretrial conference before his trial begins next month.

Tsarnaev, 21, was led into the courtroom by U.S. marshals. He was wearing a black sweater and gray trousers and had a scruffy beard and a mop top hairstyle similar to the one seen in his mug shot. He smiled to his attorneys and one patted him on the arm.

The courtroom was packed with FBI agents, police who worked on the case and more than a dozen survivors and family members.

Boston: Delay Sought in Bombing Trial

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS DEC. 23, 2014

Lawyers for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing , are again asking a federal judge there to delay his trial, this time until September. In a motion filed on Tuesday, Mr. Tsarnaev’s lawyers argued that the trial, scheduled to start with jury selection on Jan. 5, would begin faster than “99 of the 119 federal capital trials to get underway since 2004.” Mr. Tsarnaev, 21, has pleaded not guilty to 30 federal charges, including using a weapon of mass destruction and faces possible execution if convicted. He was indicted 18 months ago. Three people died, and more than 260 were injured when two pressure cooker bombs went off at the finish line of the race on April 15, 2013. Defense attorneys argued that a September 2015 trial date — or any additional delay the judge seeks to grant — would be more realistic and fair, given the “extraordinary complexity and international dimensions” of the case. Judge George O’Toole, this past September, denied a similar request by Mr. Tsarnaev’s lawyers to delay the trial, as well as a related request to move the trial out of Boston.

No Delayed Start in Boston Marathon Trial: Prosecutors

World | Associated Press | Updated: December 25, 2014 07:28 IST

Boston:  Federal prosecutors are opposing a request by lawyers for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to delay the start of his trial until September.

Jury selection is scheduled to begin Jan. 5. Tsarnaev, 21, has pleaded not guilty to 30 charges and if convicted could face the death penalty.

In a court filing on Wednesday, prosecutors rejected complaints by defense attorneys about their ability to digest the enormous volume of material provided by the government as the trial approaches.

Prosecutors said much of that information was demanded by the defense and voluntarily turned over by the government "in the spirit of openness."

"Tsarnaev should not be heard to complain about the receipt of information that he himself has requested and that the government had no legal obligation to provide earlier (or at all)," prosecutors wrote.

Feds: Don't Delay Boston Marathon Bombing Suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Trial (Video)

By Pete Williams

Federal prosecutors on Wednesday urged a judge to reject a request from lawyers for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to delay the start of the Boston Marathon bombing trial until September.

Defense lawyers said earlier this week that the government had so many names on its proposed witness list that it was impossible to delve into their backgrounds in time for the trial, scheduled now to begin in January.

But the government says that concern is exaggerated.

The government says the vast majority of those on the list are "law enforcement agents involved in the collection, photographing, or chain of custody of evidence." The government says if offered to remove them from the list if the defense lawyers would stipulate that there was no need for their testimony.

Boston Bombing Hearing Disrupted as Trial Looms For Tsarnaev

By Erik Larson and Janelle Lawrence |  December 18, 2014

The mother-in-law of a Chechen murder suspect killed by FBI agents probing the Boston Marathon bombing disrupted a pre-trial hearing for defendant Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, shouting the U.S. must “stop killing innocent boys.”

The outburst came as Tsarnaev seeks to move the Jan. 5 trial to Washington or New York from Boston, where his lawyers argued jurors will be biased against him. The 21-year-old faces possible execution if convicted in the 2013 attack that killed 3 and injured 260. An earlier request to move the case was denied.


Tsarnaev, sporting a wiry black beard, was led into court handcuffed, wearing a black sweater and gray pants, in his first appearance since pleading not guilty in July 2013. Defense attorney David Bruck said a delay of the trial was supported by new information received in the last two days, without elaborating.

U.S. District Judge George O’Toole Jr., who denied Bruck’s earlier request to switch cities, has yet to rule on the renewed request. As with Tsarnaev’s last appearance, injured marathon spectators and families of victims shared the courtroom with Tsarnaev’s supporters from around the country who believe he was framed by the government.

Tsarnaev lawyers again push for trial delay

By John R. Ellement Globe Staff  December 29, 2014

Attorneys for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev once against insisted Monday that they cannot be ready for the death penalty trial now set to start Jan. 5, and renewed their request to push the trial’s start to the fall.

In papers filed in US District Court, the attorneys for the 21-year-old who is accused of detonating two bombs at the 2013 Marathon finish line along with his late brother, Tamerlan, said the government has handed over thousands of documents to them at the last moment.
 
As a result, the attorneys wrote, there is no way they can be ready to defend Tsarnaev both during the trial, and if he is convicted, during the penalty phase where jurors will be asked to decide whether the 21-year-old former Cambridge resident deserves the death penalty.

Boston Marathon bombing trial to begin on time after delay, move motions denied  

Lawyers for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev later asked a federal appeals court Wednesday to overturn a judge’s decision to not move his upcoming trial out of state. The defense is now asking U.S. District Court Judge George O’Toole to postpone jury selection, scheduled to begin Monday, pending the outcome of the appeal.


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS / Published: Thursday, January 1, 2015, 1:11 PM / Updated: Thursday, January 1, 2015, 1:14 PM

BOSTON — Lawyers for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev asked a federal appeals court Wednesday to overturn a judge’s decision to not move his upcoming trial out of state.

The appeal was filed with the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals hours after U.S. District Court Judge George O’Toole denied the change-of-venue request and a motion seeking a nine-month delay in the start of the trial. The defense is now asking O’Toole to postpone jury selection, scheduled to begin Monday, pending the outcome of the appeal.

~Snipped~

The defense lawyers, in their appeal to the higher court, again argued Tsarnaev couldn’t receive a fair trial in the Boston federal courthouse a couple of miles from where the bombing occurred. Prosecutors, they said, were likely to depict the crimes as having affected not only those killed and injured but nearly the entire greater Boston community.

“Thus, every member of the jury pool is, in effect, an actual victim of the charged offenses,” the defense attorneys wrote.

As an alternative to ordering the trial moved, the lawyers suggested the appeals court order O’Toole to hold a hearing on “disputed issues of fact” and reconsider the previous change-of-venue motions

Prosecutors oppose moving Tsarnaev trial

Say they are ready to begin case on Monday


By Milton J. Valencia | Globe Staff  January 02, 2015
 
Federal prosecutors urged a United States appeals court Thursday to ignore alleged Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s last-minute plea to postpone his trial, saying the case has been properly litigated and is prepared for Monday, the scheduled start date.

The prosecutors filed their arguments with the appeals court on New Year’s Day in response to an emergency effort the day before by Tsarnaev’s lawyers to have the trial moved to a district outside Boston. They argued it will be impossible to empanel a fair jury in the same city where the bombs exploded.

~Snipped~

But government prosecutors said in their 26-page response Thursday that there is no need to relocate the trial, or postpone jury selections.

“While there has been a great deal of media coverage in this case, Tsarnaev has not shown, as the district court found, that that coverage has so inflamed and pervasively prejudiced the pool that a fair and impartial jury cannot be empaneled in this district of approximately five million people,” the prosecutors argued.

It was not immediately clear Thursday how the appeals court, which is closed Friday because of the holiday, will handle the emergency request by the defense team, or if it will hold a hearing. Chief Appellate Judge Sandra L. Lynch had ordered prosecutors to file their response by Thursday evening and had been monitoring the court filings.

Boston Bomb Suspect Appeals Denial of Bid to Move Trial

By Erik Larson  Jan 2, 2015 1:31 PM CT

U.S. District Judge George O’Toole Jr., who is overseeing the case, today denied a request for a short delay while the appeals court decides on the venue bid, saying a postponement would disrupt potential jurors’ schedules.

“Any change in reporting dates would cause some unknown degree of disruption to those people,” O’Toole said. “A short stay could lead to a long continuance of the commencement of trial.”

The appeals court can delay the trial if it sees fit, the judge said. Prosecutors opposed the request.

A delay is unlikely, said Mark Pearlstein, a former federal prosecutor who isn’t involved in the case. The defense is likely to use the trial venue as a reason to appeal if Tsarnaev is convicted, he said.

No Delay: Appeals Court Clears Way for Boston Bombing Trial to Begin

By Pete Williams

A federal appeals court declined Saturday to delay the start of the Boston bombing trial — rejecting a defense request that the appeals court either order the judge to move the trial out of Boston or hold a hearing on the issue.

The vote was 2-1, with Judge Juan R. Torruella dissenting. That means the trial schedule remains on track, with jury selection beginning Monday and likely to take a week or two.

Judge Torruella tried to argue that the court acted too quickly in moving the case forward. "I have found it impossible to read even a small part of all of this evidence, much less give it the careful consideration a case involving the death penalty deserves," he wrote in a brief dissent.

Boston bombing trial lawyers fail to reach plea deal

Evan Perez, CNN
Updated 7:57 AM ET, Mon January 5, 2015

Washington (CNN)—As accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev goes on trial Monday few doubt the outcome of the first phase of the two-phase trial. It's the second, the sentencing phase, including a possible death sentence, that has been the subject of behind the scenes discussions.

Federal prosecutors and defense attorneys for Tsarnaev have held talks on a possible plea agreement but failed to reach one, U.S. officials familiar with the talks say.

The discussions in recent months have centered on the possibility of Tsarnaev pleading guilty and receiving a life sentence without parole, according to the officials.

But the talks have reached an impasse because the Justice Department has resisted removing the death penalty as a possibility, these officials say.

Boston bombing trial, opening Monday, could last months

G. Jeffrey MacDonald, Special for USA TODAY 8:14 a.m. EST January 5, 2015



BOSTON — The Boston Marathon bombing trial gets underway Monday as potential jurors begin arriving at federal court, where a panel of 12 will ultimately decide whether 21-year-old suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is executed.

More than 1,000 residents of eastern Massachusetts, a region still scarred by the deadly attacks of April 2013, will fill out jury selection questionnaires. A litany of queries boils down to two essentials: Can you be fair? Can you impose the death penalty if conditions are met?

Seating a qualified jury will be difficult, court watchers say, and could take weeks. It's as important as anything that might happen in the courtroom after jurors take their seats.

"This jury selection process is going to be like very few others in a federal criminal case," said Jeremy Sternberg, a former federal prosecutor who is a partner at Holland & Knight in Boston. "It's going to take a very long time. ... Its importance cannot be overstated."

Trial of accused Boston Marathon bomber starting



Last Updated Jan 5, 2015 9:40 AM EST

Accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev arrived in a federal courthouse in Boston on Monday as jury selection in his trial gets underway. Tsarnaev faces charges from the terror attack that killed three and injured 260 more people nearly two years ago, reports CBS News correspondent Don Dahler.

Potential jurors got a good look at Tsarnaev when he sat down at a table in the front of the jury assembly room on Monday, flanked by his attorneys. An estimated 1,200 will be called to federal court to be considered for the jury. The Associated Press reports 200 have already been given initial instructions.

Due in part to the extensive media coverage of the bombing, jury selection is expected to take several weeks.

Tsarnaev faces dozens of charges ranging from four counts of murder to using a weapon of mass destruction. The evidence against him includes eyewitnesses and surveillance video that allegedly put him and his brother at the scene, forensic evidence, as well as statements that prosecutors say implicate him.

BOSTON (Reuters) - A U.S. judge on Monday began the process of selecting the jury that will hear the trial of accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, telling the first of some 1,200 prospects to read no more news accounts about the deadly blasts.Tsarnaev, a 21-year-old ethnic Chechen who is a naturalized U.S. citizen, could get the death penalty if convicted of killing three people and injuring more than 260 others by detonating a pair of homemade bombs placed amid a crowd of thousands of spectators at the race's finish line on April 15, 2013. He has pleaded not guilty to all 30 charges against him.

U.S. District Judge George O'Toole acknowledged the panel of 12 jurors and six alternates will be aware of the incident, but reminded the group that their job during the three to four month trial would be to consider only the evidence presented in court.

"Mr. Tsarnaev is charged in connection with events that occurred near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013 that resulted in the deaths of three people," as well as with the fatal shooting of a police officer three days later, O'Toole told the group of 200 prospects

Tsarnaev, flanked by his attorneys, sat at a table at the front of the jury assembly room. Wearing a dark sweater and khaki pants, he looked down much of the time but occasionally glanced at the potential jurors and the judge. He also picked at his shaggy beard

When U.S. District Judge George O'Toole Jr. introduced him to the first group of prospective jurors and asked him to stand, he acknowledged them with a slight nod.

BOSTON — Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR’ tsahr-NEYE’-ehv) is facing a new group of potential jurors in his federal death penalty trial.

Tsarnaev looked down at the floor as he walked in to the jury assembly room. About 200 citizens from eastern Massachusetts are being considered Tuesday to serve on a 12-person jury for his trial.

Hunt for a Jury Continues in Boston Bombing Trial

Lawyers Expected to Consider 1,200 Prospective Jurors for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s Trial

BOSTON—Roughly 200 more potential jurors sat in a federal courthouse room Tuesday morning across from accused Boston Marathon bomber  Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, as the possibly weeks-long task of finding a jury for his trial continued.

Starting Monday and continuing through Wednesday, 1,200 prospective jurors from eastern Massachusetts are expected to appear at the courthouse as part of the selection process.

Mr. Tsarnaev, seated at a table and flanked by his lawyers, looked up at the ceiling Tuesday as Judge George A. O’Toole described the punishments the jury will have to decide if the defendant is found guilty: the death penalty or life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Why the death penalty is so crucial to the Boston Marathon bombing trial

By Mark Berman January 6 at 6:05 PM

~Snipped~

“This case is not about guilt,” Daniel Medwed, a law professor at Northeastern University, told NPR. “In my mind, this case is really about whether or not he’s going to get the death penalty.”

This is an unusual situation in Massachusetts, since the state abolished the death penalty in 1984, nearly a decade before Tsarnaev was born. (New Hampshire is the sole state in New England that still has the death penalty.) Over the last three decades, some governors in Massachusetts have tried to reinstate the death penalty; while he was in office, Mitt Romney assembled a panel to create a new death-penalty framework in 2003 and unsuccessfully introduced a bill to revive the practice two years later.

~Snipped~

One of the people who does not support the death penalty is Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. He said he opposes the death penalty partly because “dedicated men and women can make mistakes.” But last year, Holder announced that because of “the nature of the conduct at issue and the resultant harm,” the Justice Department would seek the death penalty in the Boston bombing case.

Jury selection in Boston bombing trial moves into arduous phase

By Scott Malone

BOSTON  Wed Jan 7, 2015 7:10am EST

(Reuters) - Jury selection for the trial of accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will move into a more difficult phase on Wednesday after the court wraps up its initial screening of 1,200 candidates summoned to appear this week.

The field needs to be winnowed down to 12 jurors and six alternates, a challenge made all the greater by the possibility of the death penalty if Tsarnaev, 21, is convicted.

Federal law requires that all jurors chosen be willing to consider voting to put the ethnic Chechen to death, a limited population in a state that has not seen an execution in more than a half-century and where a majority of residents say they oppose the death penalty.

Boston Bomb Suspect’s Last Hope May Be With ‘Liberal’ Jurors

By Erik Larson and Janelle Lawrence   January 05, 2015

As the trial of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev begins, defense lawyers trying to keep their client off death row face a tough task: finding jurors who haven’t made up their minds about the man accused of setting off fatal explosions at the city’s premiere sporting event.

The defense team, which has worked on some of the highest-profile federal death-penalty cases, repeatedly failed to get the trial moved out of the city. Starting this morning, the lawyers began working with U.S. prosecutors to pick 12 jurors and six alternates from a pool of more than 1,200 Massachusetts residents for the capital murder case.

If the jury convicts Tsarnaev, it will have to decide whether the 21-year-old ex-college student should be executed. The government argues death is warranted by the horrific nature of the April 2013 attack, which killed three people, including an 8-year-old boy, and wounded 260, many of whose limbs were blown off in the street near the finish line.

Marathon bombing trial: The story so far

Posted: Thursday, January 8, 2015 2:00 am

The defendant

Tsarnaev has been introduced to each group of potential jurors. Sometimes, he has given an awkward nod to the group; other times, he has looked down. While the judge gives instructions, Tsarnaev has picked at his beard, quietly drummed his fingers on the table and looked at the judge. He appears self-conscious and has only occasionally looked at the prospective jurors.

The victims

Only a handful of bombing victims have watched jury selection. Jaymi Cohen, a Tufts University lacrosse player who went to the marathon with some of her teammates to cheer on the runners, watched the proceedings Wednesday afternoon. U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz sat with Cohen and her father. Cohen declined to comment.

What happens next

Tsarnaev's lawyers and federal prosecutors will spend the next few days reviewing more than 37,800 pages of juror questionnaires before individual questioning begins on Jan. 15. Twelve jurors and six alternates will be chosen. That process is expected to take three weeks. The judge told prospective jurors that he expects the trial to begin with opening statements on Jan. 26.

Heightened Court Security for Boston Marathon Bombing Trial

BOSTON — Jan 9, 2015, 2:57 AM ET
By PHILIP MARCELO Associated Press


Extraordinary security measures are being taken during the federal death penalty trial of accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, perhaps the most scrutinized U.S. terror case since the Oklahoma City bombing.

White SUVs from Homeland Security line up bumper-to-bumper in front of Boston's federal courthouse while others periodically circle the block. Boston police officers patrol the perimeter on foot, and a dark special operations van is stationed near the entrance. In the harbor nearby, armed U.S. Coast Guard boats ply the waters, and inside the court building officers with dogs roam the hallways.

The U.S. Marshals Service, which oversees courthouse security, declined to comment on measures for the trial and Boston police spokesman Michael McCarthy said his department is not aware of any credible threats. McCarthy said the department is simply providing support to federal authorities, although he declined to say how many city officers or which units have been assigned.
