Opening statements in Boston Marathon bomber trial set for today

In this Jan. 5, 2015, file courtroom sketch, Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, left, is depicted beside U.S. District Judge George O'Toole Jr., right, as O'Toole addresses a pool of potential jurors in a jury assembly room at the federal courthouse, in Boston. Lawyers for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tsarnaev have asked a judge three times to move his trial out of Massachusetts because of the emotional impact of the deadly attack. Three times, the judge has refused. On Thursday, Feb. 19, Tsarnaev’s defense team will ask a federal appeals court to take the decision out of the hands of O’Toole Jr. and order him to move the trial. They insist that Tsarnaev cannot find a fair and impartial jury in Massachusetts because too many people believe he’s guilty and many have personal connections to the marathon or the bombings. (AP Photo/Jane Flavell Collins, File)After nearly two months of jury selection, opening arguments are set to begin Wednesday in the case against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev for his alleged role in the dual bombings at the April 2013 Boston Marathon, which killed three people and injured almost 300 more.
