BOSTON —A "sizable group" of relatives of convicted marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev arrived in Boston Thursday, Massachusetts State Police confirmed.
It was not immediately clear who the relatives were, but Tsarnaev's mother was not among them, state police said.
The relatives arrived the day federal prosecutors rested their case in the penalty phase of Tsarnaev's trial. The defense is expected to begin presenting its witnesses Monday.
The prosecution rested Thursday afternoon after calling a man who lost a leg in the bombing. They will get a chance for rebuttal after the defense presents its case.
