A U.S. District Judge rejected on Friday a request for a new trial for convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, saying that the issues his attorneys raised in their request one had been resolved prior to his trial last year.

Tsarnaev was sentenced to death by lethal injection on June 24 in the 2013 bomb attack, which killed three people and injured more than 260.
