Judges denies Tsarnaev's request for second deadline extension

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) - A federal judge has denied Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's lawyer's request for a second extension in filing the paperwork to move his trial out of Boston.

The lawyers originally had the deadline pushed back to June 18 and were now looking to extend things to October.

They say they wanted more time to analyze media coverage of the case.

The judge has only denied the lawyers' request for extending a deadline, not on whether the trial itself will be moved.

The paperwork for that motion must be filed by June 18 with a decision coming afterward.
