Boston Marathon Bombing

Trial of Alleged Boston Bomber to Begin November 3

Judge went with prosecutor's request-defense requested September 2015


A federal judge in Boston today set a November trial date for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the young man charged in the deadly Boston Marathon bombings that shook the nation last year, raising again the specter of terrorism on American soil.

US District Court Judge George A. O'Toole slated the trial for Nov. 3, much sooner than the earliest date suggested by defense attorneys in the high-profile death penalty case.
