Defense Rests Case In Boston Bombing Trial

The defense in the Boston Bombings case against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev came to a speedy conclusion Tuesday. They only used four witnesses and only six hours of testimony. When compared to the prosecution, 92 witnesses, three weeks of testimony.

The defenses’ only point: that his older brother, Tamerlan, was calling the shots. If that argument makes any impression with the jury, the defense hopes it will save their client’s life. Closing arguments are scheduled for Monday.
