Lawyers to get Boston bombing suspect prison files

Posted:

BOSTON (AP) -- A judge has approved a defense request for federal prison records on the Boston Marathon bombing suspect.

Also Monday, the defense and prosecution filed a joint motion to delay a May 30 probable cause hearing in the case against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev at least until July 2.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Marianne Bowler said prison officials should give attorneys daily activity logs, suicide watch logs, psychology data files, photographs, commissary files and other records.

The judge ruled last week that defense lawyers couldn't take their own photos of Tsaraev in prison, but said prison officials could take photos of Tsarnaev with his lawyers present. Those also would be shared with prosecutors.

The April 15 bombings killed three people and injured more than 260.
