The witness is Dzhokhar’s college roommate Dias Kadyrbayev who Dzhokhar had told that Tamerlan had performed jihad and were involved in the triple murder. He offered to witness to recieve leniency because he was charged with obstruction for having removed a backpack, laptop, fireworks and other incriminating items from Dzhokhar’s dorm room after the bombings.
Tamarlan’s friend, Ibragim Todashev, confessed to the FBI that he was also involved with the murders, but he was shot and killed by the FBI agent who was questioning him when he charged the agent with a five-foot pole. Kadyrbayev got six years in prison and were then deported to Kazakhstan.
Tamerlan was shot and killed on September 18. Dzhokhar were also shot at the same time, but survived and were sentenced to death. An Al-Qaida leader have threathened the U.S. with grave consequences if Dzhokhar is harmed.
