Closing arguments set for bombing suspect's friend

Closing arguments set for bombing suspect's friend story image

BOSTON (AP) - Jurors in the trial of a friend of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev are set to hear closing arguments in his obstruction of justice case.

Azamat Tazhayakov is accused with another friend of removing items from Tsarnaev's college dorm room several days after the 2013 attack, which killed three people and injured more than 260 others.

Closing arguments are Wednesday in U.S. District Court.

Prosecutors say Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev disposed of Tsarnaev's laptop computer and a backpack containing altered fireworks hours after the FBI released photos of Tsarnaev and his brother as suspects.

Tazhayakov's lawyers say Kadyrbayev removed the items.

All the suspects have pleaded not guilty.
