BOSTON — Opening statements begin this morning in the trial of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Tsarnaev's lawyers have made it clear they'll try to show Tsarnaev's 26-year-old brother Tamerlan was the mastermind of the attack, and that Dzhokhar was only 19 at the time.

Tamerlan was killed during the manhunt for the two of them.
