Boston Marathon bombing suspect faces state charges

Posted: Updated:

Surviving Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev faces state charges including murder.

The Middlesex district attorney's office issued a double warrant Monday against Tsarnaev, who's currently in the custody of federal authorities on charges connected to the April 15 bombings. Tsarnaev was indicted in June on state charges including the death of an MIT police officer.

The state can not proceed with an arraignment until the defendant appears in court. Tsarnaev has pleaded not guilty to federal charges.
