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.

19-year-old Dzhokar Tsarnaev remains hospitalized Saturday after being taken into police custody Friday night.

It's believed Tsarnaev was wounded in a firefight with police early Friday.

It's still unclear when he will be arraigned for the Boston Marathon bombings.
