Lawyers for accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev say they cannot try the death penalty case until September 2015 at the earliest, citing the vast amount of evidence they still must review to plot their strategy in the greatly anticipated trial.
“The defense has not yet had an opportunity to review numerous additional items . . . including nearly 2,000 items that reportedly are still being analyzed by the FBI and items kept at additional locations,” said a joint filing defense lawyers and prosecutors submitted Monday in federal court.
