The teenage suspect accused of killing four and wounding 264 at the Boston Marathon and its ensuing manhunt told a judge Wednesday he is "not guilty" of 30 federal charges.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, appeared in court with his arm in a cast and his face swollen for a seven-minute proceeding, reports CBS News. He could get the death penalty if prosecutors pursue it in the April 15 Boston Marathon bombing he allegedly orchestrated with his brother, Tamerlan.
Tsarnaev was arrested April 19 while hiding in a boat, following an intense manhunt and gun battle with Watertown (Mass.) Police officers. MIT Officer Sean Collier was killed and MBTA Officer Richard Donohue was critically wounded.

Here we go! How much taxpayer's money will be wasted on this POS?
Cases like this should be taken care of with a $0.03 bullet. I and many other Americans don't care about putting Terrorist under a microscope to figure out where they are coming from and why they did this. I don't care what information they gleem from him. I notice no one wants correct this problem by closing borders or profiling. This is not the Dr. Phil show. We are like deer in front of headlights when it comes to dealing with these problems.

Fair trials should not be the right of a terrorist. The ones who died or were mamed by he and his brother didn't have rights according to the things he wrote in blood. They paid the price for what they deemed "the wrongs of the US Gov't" These people were guilty in these terrorists eyes just for being Americans. I say take him out back and just do away with him.
