Friends of accused Boston bomber to face June coverup trial

BOSTON (Reuters) – Three college friends of accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will go on trial in June on charges they helped hide his tracks from the FBI, a U.S. judge ruled on Wednesday.

U.S. District Judge Douglas Woodlock denied a joint request by prosecutors and two of the defendants – Dias Kadyrbayev of Kazakhstan and Robel Phillipos of Cambridge, Massachusetts – to put the trial off until early next year to give defense attorneys more time to sort through millions of pages of evidence surrounding the bombing investigation.
