Lawyers for accused Boston Marathon bomber to seek to move trial

BOSTON (Reuters) – Attorneys for accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev plan to ask a judge to move his trial outside of Boston, they said in court papers on Wednesday, adding they needed more time to prepare their arguments.

Tsarnaev’s attorneys told U.S. District Judge George O’Toole they needed until Aug. 3 to make their case for moving the trial outside of the city where a pair of homemade pressure cooker bombs killed three people and injured 264 on April 15, 2013.
