The Boston Marathon bombing survivors want justice. The city wants solace, and the nation wants answers. Today, just a month shy of the bombing's two-year anniversary, the man accused of carrying out the worst terror attack on US soil since September 11, 2001 will begin to answer for his alleged crimes.
Opening statements in the Boston bombing trial were slated to begin Wednesday morning in Moakley Federal Court in Boston. Terror suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 21, faces death if convicted of the fatal attack which took the lives of two young women and an 8-year-old boy on April 15, 2013. More than 260 others were injured - 17 survivors lost limbs - and a city was left traumatized.
Jury selection in the notorious trial began on January 5. On Tuesday, after several delays due to snow storms and difficulty finding impartial jurors, a jury was seated.
