Two Tsarnaev Friends Indicted

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s two college friends are facing 25 years in prison and deportation on charges of conspiracy to obstruct justice after allegedly helping the Boston Marathon bombing suspect dispose of a laptop, fireworks, and a backpack after the attacks. Dias Kadyrbayev and Azamat Tazhayakov, both 19 years old and students at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth, received a text from Tsarnaev asking them to “take what’s there,” at which point they took the items back to their apartment and put them in a Dumpster. They were later found in the city landfill.
