Marathon Bombing Trial Set to Begin [VIDEO]

The trial for one of the accused suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing is set to begin with jury selection on Monday, almost two years after the blast killed three and injured more than 260 people. The judge, prosecutors, and defense lawyers will scrutinize 1,200 names to find 12 jurors and six alternates for the high-profile trial of Dzhokar Tsarnaev, who is accused of working with his brother to set off two pressure-cooker bombs near the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon. Tsarnaev’s brother, Tamerlan, was killed in a shootout with police three days after the bombing. The jury will determine whether Tsarnaev, who has pleaded not guilty to more than two dozen charges relating to the bombing, will receive the death penalty.
