By Elizabeth Barber BOSTON (Reuters) - The Boston Marathon bombing trial jury on Wednesday saw two sides of defendant Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, in pipe bombs he is charged with hurling at police four days after the attack and the sweatshirt stained with his own blood he was arrested in. Tsarnaev, 21, is charged with killing three people and injuring 264 with a pair of homemade bombs at the race's crowded finish line on April 15, 2013, and with fatally shooting a university police officer three days later. Their goal is to convince the jury that the plot was driven by his 26-year-old brother, Tamerlan, with Dzhokhar a junior partner in the scheme. His lawyers have tried in the past two days to play up that angle, and a defense attorney on Wednesday asked Fife if Tsarnaev was "visibly quite injured" when the sweatshirt was cut from his body.
