Hearing Postponed for Boston Bombing Suspect

Posted: Updated:

A judge has agreed to postpone a probable cause hearing for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
 
U.S. Magistrate Judge Marianne Bowler on Tuesday granted a joint request from prosecutors and defense attorneys to postpone the May 30 hearing until July 2. The lawyers say they need more time to obtain and review evidence, and cited complex legal issues in the case.
 
The bombings near the finish line of the marathon killed three people and injured more than 260. Tsarnaev is accused of carrying out the April 15 attack with his brother, Tamerlan, who died four days later following a shootout with police. 
 
Prosecutors said last week that they needed more time to indict Tsarnaev than the 30-day period prescribed under federal law.  (AP)
