Boston bombing suspect moved to federal detention facility


BOSTON (WKOW) -- The younger brother accused in the Boston Marathon bombings is now out of the hospital. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was transferred to a federal medical detention center overnight.

The U.S. Marshals Service says Tsarnaev left Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and was taken to the Federal Medical Center Devens, about 40 miles west of Boston. The facility treats federal prisoners and detainees who need long-term medical or mental health care.

Tsarnaev, 19, is recovering from a gunshot wound to the throat and other injuries in an attempt to get away from authorities. He's been charged with setting off explosives at the Boston Marathon, killing three people and hurting more than 260.

Investigators say Dzhokhar's older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was also involved in the bombing. Meanwhile, their father has delayed a trip to the U.S. indefinitely.
