Attorneys for accused Boston bomber’s friends seeking more records

BOSTON (Reuters) – Attorneys for three college friends of the accused Boston Marathon bomber who are charged with helping cover up evidence of the crime on Monday asked for more records related to their arrests.

Defense attorneys for the friends said they needed notes of any statements they made before being advised of their right not to speak to police. A large number of police swarmed the apartment south of Boston shared by two of the men, both Kazakh exchange students, during a massive April 19 manhunt for bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Hearing set for accused Boston bomber’s friends in cover-up case

BOSTON (Reuters) – Lawyers for three college friends of accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who prosecutors say interfered with the investigation into the attack, are due in court on Monday to brief a judge on their readiness for a June trial.

U.S. District Judge Douglas Woodlock in January denied a joint request by federal prosecutors and two of the three defendants to delay the trial until early 2015, saying the case was “not that complex.”
