BOSTON (AP) — A federal judge has set a June trial for three friends of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on charges of hindering the investigation into the attack.
The judge agreed and scheduled the trial for June 23, several weeks earlier than Tazhayakov requested.
Authorities say Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov removed a laptop and backpack from Tsarnaev’s room at the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth three days after the bombing.
Phillipos is accused of lying to authorities. All three men have pleaded not guilty.
The April 15 bombings killed three people and injured more than 260.
