Boston Marathon Bombing Probe Continues


(NBC News)  A friend of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev charged with lying to investigators after the Boston Marathon bombings can be released from jail as long as the judge imposes strict conditions to make sure he shows up for future hearings, federal prosecutors said Monday.

In a joint court filing, prosecutors and defense lawyers proposed that the friend, Robel Phillipos, be confined to his home and ordered to wear an electronic monitor.

Phillipos' lawyers argued over the weekend that he is not a flight risk and that he had nothing to do with the marathon attack itself. They also said he had been "frightened and confused" under questioning from investigators.

Phillipos is one of three friends of Tsarnaev, the surviving suspect in the bombings, who were arrested last week after they were questioned about removing a backpack and fireworks from Tsarnaev's dorm room three days after the blasts.
