Tsarnaev Makes First Court Appearance Since 2014, Still Pleads Not Guilty
Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev appeared in court for the first time since being arraigned in July 2013 on Thursday. With protesters outside, the families of bombing victims inside, and the U.S. District Court George O' Toole Jr. making no ruling, tensions ran high. Pending motions will be ruled in writing, including whether or not the trial will be moved out of Boston. Tsarnaev's trial is currently set for Jan. 5 with jury selection, though the defense is seeking a delay. Tsarnaev faces the death penalty if convicted of the 30 federal charges for the two bombs that exploded in the April 2013 marathon and killed three people, leaving 260 injured.
