Trial of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to begin next week: officials

Denis Slattery  New York Daily News

The trial of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will begin next week, court officials said.

Opening statements are expected to start March 4, officials said Wednesday.

Jury selection was slowed by winter weather and prospective jurors who said they either already believe Tsarnaev, 21, is guilty or had personal connections to the April 2013 attacks that killed three people and injured more than 260.

Tsarnaev faces the death penalty if convicted.
