Attorney Robert G. Stahl, who represents Dias Kadyrabyev; the attorney for Azmat Tazhayakov, the second college student from Kazakhstan charged with obstruction of justice; and the attorney for the third Boston aftermath defendant, a U.S. citizen charged with lying to authorities, asked U.S. District Judge Douglas Woodlock to order the government to turn over to the defense additional documents and records in preparation for the June 23, 2014 trial.
Mr. Stahl sought text messages that may exist on the account of the destroyed cell phone of accused bomber Dzokhar Tsarnaev to or from the three college-student defendants. The government said the defense already had texts retrieved from the three college boys' mobile phones. Stahl said he believes that Tsarvaev's cellphone records could reveal additional information that the defense may need for the trial.
Judge Woodlock took the attorneys requests under advisement.
