Marathon suspect's friend due in court for hearing

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (AP) - A friend of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is due in court for a hearing to discuss jury selection for his upcoming trial.

Azamat Tazhayakov is charged with impeding the investigation into the 2013 bombing, which killed three people and injured more than 260.
   
Tazhayakov and another friend are accused of removing items from Tsarnaev's dorm room at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth several days after the bombing. Tazhayakov is not charged with participating in the bombing or knowing about it in advance.
   
A final pretrial hearing is scheduled Wednesday.
   
Jury selection is slated to begin Monday. U.S. District Judge Douglas Woodlock has said he expects to call in hundreds of potential jurors to pick a jury of 12 regular jurors and six alternates.
