UPDATE: Boston Marathon Bombing Suspect Faces Judge for First Time

Posted: Updated:

The surviving Boston Marathon bombing suspect is communicating from his hospital bed, and also faced a judge for the first time today.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been charged with using a weapon of mass destruction and could face death.

Today was the first day back to work for people in Boston since police shutdown the city last week.

Many went to a memorial at the finish line to pay their respects, and they want answers from Dzhokhar.

This city held a moment of silence at 2:50 today, marking the moment the bombs went off one week ago.

The White House says the bomber will not be tried as an enemy combatant, something some lawmakers were asking for.
