Fla. prosecutor to investigate Todashev shooting

Civil liberties groups praised a Florida prosecutor Friday for launching an independent review of the fatal shooting of a Chechen man by a Boston FBI agent, saying they hoped he would hold government officials accountable if they are found negligent.

Jeffrey L. Ashton, the top prosecutor in Orlando, announced Thursday that he is reviewing witness and forensic evidence from the US Department of Justice’s preliminary investigation into the death of Ibragim Todashev, a friend of suspected Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
