In a packed Boston courtroom, Rebekah Gregory took the stand. She had witnessed the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15, 2013, and the scene was still fresh in her mind. "I remember being thrown back, hoisted in the air and thrown back," she recalled. She reached for her 5-year-old son, Noah, who was screaming, "mommy, mommy, mommy."

Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has pleaded not guilty to 30 counts including use of a weapon of mass destruction to kill.
In his first public appearance since being arrested April 19, he entered the plea Wednesday at his arraignment in federal court in Boston.
For first one, he leaned toward a microphone and said, "Not guilty," in a Russian accent. He then said not guilty repeatedly about a half-dozen more times.

The U.S. Attorney General says the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings, 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, has been indicted by federal grand jury with conspiring to use weapons of mass destruction and "killing four individuals among other charges".
In a Tweet posted earlier in the day, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Massachusetts also said that a press conference would be held Thursday afternoon.
In all, a 30-count indictment was handed down against Tsarnaev. In addition to the three deaths caused by the bombs at the marathon, he was charged with the murder of MIT Police Officer Sean Collier, according to Boston Globe reporter David Abel.

Shortly before his April 19 capture, as he remained hidden and bleeding inside the hull of a boat, Boston Marathon bombings suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev reportedly scrawled a note admitting to the April 15 attack and saying it was in retaliation for American action against Muslims.
A law enforcement source also told CNN on Thursday that the message said Dzhokhar, 19, would not miss his older brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, – who had already been killed by police on April 18 – because he would soon be joining him as a martyr in paradise.
"When you attack one Muslim, you attack all Muslims," read the note, scrawled with a marker on the interior wall of the boat's cabin, according to CBS News senior correspondent John Miller.

The surviving Boston Marathon bombings suspect has been released from a civilian hospital and transferred to a federal medical detention center in central Massachusetts.
The U.S. Marshals Service said Friday that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev left Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center overnight and was taken to the Federal Medical Center Devens about 40 miles west of Boston.
The facility, on the decommissioned Fort Devens U.S. Army base, treats federal prisoners and detainees who require specialized long-term medical or mental health care.
