Surviving Boston Marathon Bombing Suspect May Argue Brother Was Influence

Steve Neavling

Should Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev be given the death penalty?

Legal experts said his lawyers may try to avoid the death penalty by arguing their client was under the influence of his brother, who recently was implicated in a past triple murder, Time reports.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s attorneys are trying to access records that suggest his now-dead brother committed a 2011 triple murder – a revelation made public Monday.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev attorneys said they have evidence that their client’s involvement has “mitigating information.”

The 20-year-old faces 30 federal charges in the twin bombings on April 15 that claimed the lives of three people, Time wrote.

Father of Boston Bombing Suspect’s Slain Friend Says FBI Killed Son ‘for Nothing’

Abdulbaki Todashev says his son loved life in America and would never kill anyone.

His son, Ibragim Todashev, was fatally shot in his Orlando apartment by an FBI agent while being questioned about his ties to Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

“I absolutely refuse to believe my son could have attacked a policeman, to be quite correct, several policemen,” he said Thursday in a telephone interview with The Los Angeles Times Chechnya.

The FBI, he insisted, “killed him for nothing.”

But federal authorities believe Ibragim Todashev may have been involved in a triple shooting with Tsaraev prior to the marathon bombing.

Chechen Immigrant Fatally Shot by FBI in Orlando Had Ties to Boston Marathon Bombing Suspect

A Chechen immigrant fatally shot by an FBI agent in Florida had connections to one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects, the Associated Press reports.

Ibragim Todashev has a lot in common with bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was killed during a shootout with police. He has Chechen roots, experience with mixed martial arts and lived in Massachusetts.

The AP wrote that Todashev may have been involved with a triple murder in which Tsaraev is emerging as a suspect.

What remains unclear is why Todashev was shot.
