Jury Selection Begins Monday in the Boston Marathon Bombing Case of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev
Boston Bombing: Trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Begins Monday With Jury Selection.
Today, the trial begins for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in the case of the Boston Marathon bombing . Jury selection begins as 3000 people have been put on notice as to potential jurors to make up 12 jurors and 6 alternates.
The man charged with the terror attack near the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon goes on trial Monday in a federal courthouse less than two miles from where two bombs, concealed in backpacks, exploded with devastating force.
Despite repeated requests from defense lawyers for a delay or a change of venue away from Boston, a federal appeals court Saturday cleared the way for jury selection to begin.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 21, is charged with 30 criminal counts in the April 2013 bombings, which killed three people and injured 260 others, and for in the murder of an MIT campus police officer, Sean Collier, a few days after the bomb attack.
Tsarnaev has pleaded not guilty. His older brother, Tamerlan, also accused in the crimes, died in a shootout with police.
CNN – Boston bombing trial lawyers fail to reach plea deal.
As accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev goes on trial Monday few doubt the outcome of the first phase of the two-phase trial. It’s the second, the sentencing phase, including a possible death sentence, that has been the subject of behind the scenes discussions.
Federal prosecutors and defense attorneys for Tsarnaev have held talks on a possible plea agreement but failed to reach one, U.S. officials familiar with the talks say.
The discussions in recent months have centered on the possibility of Tsarnaev pleading guilty and receiving a life sentence without parole, according to the officials.

Tsarnaev must be thankful that the MSM
is not referring to him as an Islamist murdering
Jihadist because that would be branding him
with a bad aura.
a trial is a waste of time and our tax money to try this terrorist.
The feds have a leader who believes war is a crime and treats it as such.
Tsarnaev is an Islamist terrorist who came to this country for the express purpose of killing Americans. He should be put in front of a firing squad and be removed from the planet.
