Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Pleads Not Guilty in Connection with Boston Marathon Bombings

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (Boston Globe sketch)

Suspected Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev pleaded not guilty to 30 counts in court on Wednesday, including a charge of using a weapon of mass destruction.

Tsarnaev is accused of carrying out two bombings near the finish line of the Boston Marathon in April, along with his brother Tamerlan. Three people were killed and more than 250 people were injured in the blasts. A fourth person, an MIT police officer, was killed by the brothers three days later.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev died hours after the MIT officer’s death. He was killed in a gunfight with police. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was wounded in that gunfight, but survived and was later indicted and charged.
