Lawyers for Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev are due in court on Tuesday to seek a new trial for their client, who was sentenced to death in June for the 2013 bomb attack that killed three people and injured more than 260. The Supreme Court found it overly broad two days after Tsarnaev was sentenced to death by lethal injection. The defense in August asked that Tsarnaev be re-tried outside Boston, saying the intense publicity surrounding the attack and the trial unfairly influenced the 12 jurors who found their client guilty and sentenced him to death.
