It’s now public who will play the two Boston Marathon bombers in Mark Walhberg’s upcoming moving depicting the attack.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev passed the U.S. citizenship test and denied terrorism links months before he and his brother detonated two bombs.
Tsarnaev’s motion asks to replace the federal public defenders of Boston with their counterparts in New York.
The grounds for appeal were not specified Friday, but one of them is expected to be the fact that the trial was held in the city of Boston.
Tsaranev, 22, was convicted last year and sentenced to death in the bombings, which killed three people and injured more than 260.
Prosecutors allege in court documents that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev showed “the opposite of remorse” when he was captured after the attack.
A federal judge has ordered the public release of hundreds of documents in the case of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
A federal judge has rejected Tsarnaev’s bid for a new trial and ordered him to pay victims of the deadly attack millions in restitution.
“I was young, dumb, and thought I could outsmart everyone,” 22-year-old Stephen Silva told a judge in U.S. District Court.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev deserves a new trial to reconsider both his guilt and his punishment, his lawyers argued Tuesday.
A judge will hear arguments next month on Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s request for a new trial.
