KREX News Room
BOSTON (AP)-People in Boston and other cities observed a moment of silence for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings one week after the explosions.
Three people were killed and more than 200 were injured. Many lost limbs.
The surviving Boston marathon bombing suspect has been charged with using and conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction against persons and property resulting in death.
In a statement Monday, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder detailed charges against 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
The charges carry a possible death sentence if he is convicted.
Tsarnaev made his initial court appearance in his room in Beth Israel Hospital. He is listed in serious but stable condition.
Officials say Tsarnaev and his older brother set off the twin explosions at Monday's marathon, killing three people and injuring more than 180 others.
