Jury seated in Boston Marathon bombing trial

Posted: Updated:

The U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts says jury selection is complete for the trial of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

The jury selection process has been ongoing for the last two months.

Tsarnaev's defense attorneys have filed multiple requests to have the trial moved out of Massachusetts, arguing it would be impossible for him to receive a fair trial.

He is accused of setting bombs near the Boston Marathon finish line on April 15, 2013 that killed three people and injured more that 200 others.

Opening statements for the trial will begin tomorrow.
