July 7, 2014 by  

Trial Of Tsarnaev Friend Starts Monday, More than a year after the Boston Marathon bombing, the first trial is about to get underway.

Opening statements are expected Monday in the trial of Azamat Tazhayakov, a 20-year-old friend of the accused suspects who is charged with obstruction.

Prosecutors say he and another friend, Dias Kadyrbayev, took a backpack containing fireworks from surviving bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s dorm room at the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth after seeing his picture on the news.

Prosecutors have been building a case against Tsarnaev, who is accused with his older brother, Tamerlan, of plotting and carrying out the April 15, 2013, bombing. Two pressure cookers loaded with shrapnel and explosives blew up near the marathon finish line, killing three people and injuring more than 260. Tamerlan died in a manhunt after the attack.
