Marathon Bombing Suspect’s Widow In Court In Driving Case

WRENTHAM, Mass. (AP) — Motor vehicle charges against the widow of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev have been dismissed.

Katherine Russell was charged with driving with a suspended driver’s license, speeding and driving an unregistered motor vehicle in Franklin in August.

A court clerk said her case was dismissed Thursday morning after she appeared in Wrentham District Court and paid $150 in court costs.

Russell’s lawyer did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev died following a shootout with police four days after the April 15 bombing.
