A federal grand jury has subpoenaed Katherine Russell, the widow of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, in connection with the 2011 triple homicide in Waltham, according to an AP report in the Boston Globe.
Authorities believe Tsarnaev, who was killed in a shootout with police following the marathon, and Ibragim Todashev, who was shot to death by an FBI agent in Orlando after he allegedly attacked the agent during questioning, committed the murders. Todashev confessed to as much before he was killed, according to authorities.
A grand jury asked Russell, of North Kingstown, R.I., for items belonging to one of the Waltham victims, Brendan Mess, her attorney told the AP. Her attorney said she does not have any of Mess’ items.
Mess, Raphael Teken and Erik Weissman were killed at Mess’ Waltham apartment on Sept. 11, 2011.
