Dzhokhar Tsarnaev remains the only one on trial, but his extended and dysfunctional family was once again the focus in federal court on Tuesday.
Members of the Tsarnaev family traveled to Boston from Russia to testify on Dzhokhar’s behalf.
A parade of so-called character witnesses took the stand Wednesday in the Boston Marathon Bombing trial.
A casual observer would be forgiven for thinking it was Tamerlan Tsarnaev who was on trial this week, rather than his younger brother.
Tamerlan’s influence is just one of the defense’s reasons for asking the jury to sentence Dzhokhar to life in prison, rather than death.
Government prosecutors rested their case-in-chief against the convicted marathon bomber after calling 17 witnesses over three days.
Jurors saw video of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev flipping the bird to a security camera and heard emotional testimony from bombing victims.
Prosecutors wasted no time Tuesday morning in making the case to end Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s life.
Following the 119th Boston Marathon, focus will shift back to the Tsarnaev trial as it progresses to the sentencing phase.
