The widow of accused Boston bombing mastermind Tamerlan Tsarnaev was in Wrentham court this morning to face several driving charges, including driving with a suspended license, speeding and driving an unregistered vehicle.

Katherine Russellpaid $150 in court fines and the charges were dismissed,according to a report by The Boston Globe.


Her late husband was one of two men accused of setting off two bombs at the Boston Marathon finish line last April, killing three and injuring 264 others. He is also suspected in the murder of MIT police Officer Sean Collier, who was shot dead days later.

Russell previously lived with the couple's young daughter in Cambridge, but now resides in Rhode Island. She has been questioned in relation to the bombing, but has not been charged.
