Testimony began in the Boston Marathon bombing trial as defense attorneys blamed Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s brother Tamerlan for the attacks.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev went on trial for his life Wednesday in the Boston Marathon bombing with his own lawyer bluntly telling the jury he committed the crime.
10 women and eight men will decide Tsarnaev’s fate.
The panel consists of eight men and 10 women. Opening statements in the case are scheduled for Wednesday.
Tsarnaev reportedly wrote a goodbye note on the boat’s panels.
The criminal cases against two friends of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev could be affected by a U.S. Supreme Court ruling.
Tsarnaev’s defense team asked a federal appeals court to take the decision out of the hands of Judge George O’Toole Jr. and order him to move the trial.
Among the challenges: who would buy something they can’t see?
The 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals scheduled the hearing for Feb. 19.
On Wednesday, Judge George O’Toole Jr. will resume questioning prospective jurors individually.
