Massachusetts issues arrest warrant for marathon bombing suspect

The Middlesex District Court in Massachusetts released an arrest warrant on Monday, October 7 for 20-year-old Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokar Tsarnaev. He may be tried for the killing of a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer.

Tsarnaev remained with the police after making a not guilty plea on 30 federal charges, which include using a weapon of mass destruction and 16 other charges. If convicted, he may receive the death penalty for the bombing, which killed three and injured over 260.

The warrant was issued on the day Tsarnaev was scheduled to be arraigned on state charges for the death of police officer Sean Collier in a shootout four days after the marathon bombings.

Twenty-six-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev, another suspect and older brother of Dzhokar, died in the shootout.
