Boston Marathon Bombing
A ceremony is being held at the University of Massachusetts-Boston to announce the first two recipients of a scholarship named for one of the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.
Two women were arrested Thursday on charges they plotted to wage violent jihad by building a homemade bomb and using it for a Boston Marathon-type terror attack, prosecutors said.
Now that the prosecution and defense have rested in the first phase of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s trial, there are a few steps left before jurors begin deliberating.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s defense team called just four witnesses over two half-days of testimony.
To end their case, prosecutors showed jurors a photo of Tsarnaev behind the Richard family.
FBI experts chose to build mock-ups of every single explosive device connected to the Boston Marathon bombings.
Jurors followed a remarkable evidence trail about how FBI agents identified where the pressure cookers were believed to be purchased.
The items were found four days after the 2013 terror attack.
Leftover BBs and receipts for the purchase of a pellet gun were found in Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s UMass Dartmouth dorm room.
The Tsarnaev brothers left behind a mountain of evidence in the aftermath of their firefight with Watertown police.
