Jury selection began Monday, June 30, 2014, in the obstruction trial of a friend of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
Azamat Tazhayakov, 20, is accused of removing items from Tsarnaev's dorm room at the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth several days after last year's deadly attack.
Jury selection began Monday with 225 potential jurors brought into the federal courthouse and asked to fill out questionnaires. Another large group will be brought in Tuesday. Judge Douglas Woodlock said 12 regular jurors and six alternates will be chosen.
Three people were killed and more than 260 were injured when two pressure cooker bombs exploded near the marathon's finish line. (AP)Find more news related pictures in our photo galleries and follow us on Tumblr
