By Scott Malone BOSTON (Reuters) - The trial of the convicted Boston Marathon bomber enters a new and critical stage on Monday as defense lawyers begin to present their case that a jury should sentence Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to life in prison, rather than death. Tsarnaev, a 21-year-old ethnic Chechen, early this month was found guilty of killing three people and injuring 264 in one of the highest-profile attacks on U.S. soil since Sept. 11, 2001, as well as fatally shooting a police officer. Defense lawyers have countered that Tsarnaev, 19 at the time of the attack, was adrift and following the lead of his 26-year-old brother, Tamerlan, who died after a gunfight with police four days after the bombing.
