Trial of accused Boston bomber’s friend turns to text messages

BOSTON (Reuters) – Text messages between the accused Boston Marathon bomber and some of his college friends will be the focus when the criminal trial of a man charged with lying to investigators resumes on Tuesday.

U.S. prosecutors contend that Robel Phillipos, 21, lied to authorities about a visit that he and two other friends made to accused bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s dorm room three days after the 2013 attack, which killed three people and injured more than 260.
