U.S. judge rejects third request to move Boston bombing trial

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 02/07/2015 - 06:05
By Scott Malone BOSTON (Reuters) - A U.S. judge on Friday rejected a third request by lawyers for the accused Boston Marathon bomber to move his trial out of the city, saying the jury selection process had been successful so far in identifying potential impartial jurors. Attorneys for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 21, who is accused of carrying out the largest mass-casualty attack on U.S. soil since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, have repeatedly sought to move the trial out of Boston. The jury selection process, which wrapped up its fifth week on Friday, has shown a number of candidates with direct ties to the event, including a man married to a nurse who tended to the wounded, as well as others who were locked down in their homes during a manhunt for Tsarnaev three days after the attack. Still, of the more than 150 potential jurors so far brought in for questioning at U.S. District Court in Boston, a process known as "voir dire," some have been suitable, the judge said.
