Focusing on boy’s death, US rests in Tsarnaev trial

Prosecutors in the federal death-penalty trial of admitted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev rested their case, just after noon, after calling 92 witnesses over 15 days of testimony.

...The trial is expected to resume Tuesday morning as the defense team continues to present its case. So far, defense lawyers have called two witnesses whose testimony was meant to place a focus on Tsarnaev’s older brother, Tamerlan, who they say was the mastermind behind the bombings. The blasts injured more than 260 and killed three people: Martin Richard, the son of a well-known Dorchester family; 23-year-old Lingzi Lu, a Boston University graduate student from China; and Krystle Marie Campbell, a 29-year-old from Arlington.
