Topic: Boston bomber emotional as aunt breaks down on stand

Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev showed emotion in court for the first time on Monday, wiping his eyes as a distraught aunt was removed from the courtroom, too overcome to testify. A jury is mulling whether Tsarnaev -- found guilty last month of all counts related to the April 15, 2013 attack on the Boston Marathon that killed three people and wounded 264 more -- should be sentenced to death or life in prison without parole. Last week, his defense team began presenting evidence in a bid to save his life, and had arranged for his aunt, 64-year-old Patimat Suleimanova, to come from Russia to testify.
