Sister of Tsarnaevs facing charges for threat involving bomb

Posted: Updated:
NORTH BERGEN, N.J. (WHDH) - The sister of Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev was arrested Wednesday for allegedly threatening a New York woman.

Police say 24-year-old Ailina Tsarnaeva told the mother of her boyfriend's child, "I have people who can go over there and put a bomb on you.”

Police say Ailina's boyfriend and his ex are in some type of dispute over their child and that on Aug. 25 Tsarnaeva called the woman on the phone.

She is charged with aggravated harassment.

After the marathon bombing Tsarnaeva told reporters "I have no idea what got in to [my brothers]" but when asked about the bombing by 7News reporters this past weekend she said, "My brothers got framed. Everybody knows that."

Tsarnaeva is living in North Bergen with her brother Tamerlan's widow, Katherine Russell.
