Two men who attended college with the Boston Marathon suspect and are charged with conspiring to obstruct justice have waived bail.
 
Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev appeared in court Wednesday and agreed to voluntarily detention.
 
Their next hearing is scheduled for May 14.
 
A third man, Robel Phillipos, is charged with making false statements to federal investigators. He awaits a court appearance.
 
An FBI affidavit says the three men removed bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's backpack from his dorm room at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth three days after the bombing.
  
The affidavit says Tazhayakov and Kadyrbayev agreed to get rid of it after concluding from news reports that Tsarnaev was one of the bombers.

The two have been held in a county jail for more than a week on allegations that they violated their student visas while attending the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth with suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who is originally from Russia.

Meanwhile, EBay says it is monitoring listings to ensure nobody uses the auction website to profit from the Boston Marathon bombings.

Jonathan Resnick's medal is for sale on the site and proceeds will go directly to charity.

He said he read on a runners' discussion board that medals were being sold and realized "it was the least I could do to make something good from something bad."

The winning bid for Resnick's medal will go to the American Red Cross of Eastern Massachusetts through eBay's program for charitable giving.

EBay says its policy "does not allow listings that graphically portray, glorify or attempt to profit from human tragedy or suffering."

Boston Athletic Association President Tom Grilk says: The one thing I am sure of is that I am in no position to evaluate or judge anybody's reaction to the horror or all of this. People will react as they do, and it's not for me to say." (AP)
