Prosecutors: Marathon suspect expected to die

Posted

BOSTON (AP) -- Federal prosecutors say Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR’ tsahr-NY’-ehv) told his mother he expected to die.

Prosecutors say Tsarnaev emailed his mother in the hours before a shootout with police that he would see her in this life or the next one.

Prosecutors on Monday filed arguments opposing a motion by lawyers for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR’ tsahr-NY’-ehv) to suppress evidence seized from a Cambridge apartment where Tsarnaev once lived.

The U.S. attorney’s office counters that Tsarnaev had essentially moved out of the apartment and thus had no expectation of privacy. They also say that since he did not expect to live, he had abandoned the expectation of privacy.

Tsarnaev awaits trial in November in connection with the fatal bombing. He pleaded not guilty.
