Boston bomber implicated in triple homicide
BOSTON (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - For the first time, federal authorities have officially implicated one of the Boston bombers as a suspect in a triple homicide.
In a court filing this week prosecutors say a man shot to death during questioning by an agent in Florida told investigators that he and Tamerlan Sarnaev had slit the throats of three men back in 2011, then covered up the crime to make it look like a drug deal gone bad.
The startling disclosure was made by federal prosecutors.
They are trying to prevent his younger brother's legal team from obtaining documents concerning the killings.
Dzokhar's defense team wants the file to show he participated in the Boston Marathon bombing because he was afraid of his brother, who he knew already to be a killer.
Prosecutors say it has no bearing on the case.
