Judge refuses to move trial of accused Boston bomber’s friend

BOSTON (Reuters) – A U.S. judge denied a renewed plea by a friend of the accused Boston Marathon bomber to move his trial on charges of lying to investigators outside the city that was the site of the largest mass-casualty attack on U.S. soil since Sept. 11, 2001.

The defendant, Robel Phillipos, accompanied two Kazakh exchange students to accused bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s college dorm room three days after the April 15, 2013, bombing, where they removed a laptop computer and a backpack containing empty fireworks shells, according to federal prosecutors.
