Boston Marathon bombing victims to attend Tsarnaev arraignment


BOSTON ( – Federal court will be packed Wednesday as potentially hundreds of Boston Marathon bombing victims plan to watch as suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is arraigned.
Courthouse officials told the Boston Herald they are reserving much of the space in the courtroom for the victims. Others will be able to watch the arraignment on television monitors in a separate area.
Last month, Tsarnaev was indicted on 30 counts, including use of a weapon of mass destruction, in connection with the April 15th bombings that killed three people.
The 19-year-old has also been accused of the murder of MIT police officer Sean Collier.

If convicted, Tsarnaev faces the death penalty.
