BOSTON (AP) — Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was charged by federal prosecutors in his hospital room Monday with conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction — a crime that carries a possible death sentence.
Officials have said Tsarnaev, 19, and his older brother set off the twin explosions at last week's marathon that killed three people and wounded more than 180. His brother, Tamerlan, 26, died Friday after a fierce gunbattle.
