Lawyers for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev say a remark he made to his sister during a prison visit was meant to be funny and wasn’t incriminating, as prosecutors have suggested.
In court documents filed Wednesday, Tsarnaev’s lawyers responded to a claim by prosecutors that Tsarnaev made a remark “to his detriment.”
Neither side has revealed what Tsarnaev said. An FBI agent who was in the room because of special prison restrictions placed on Tsarnaev overheard it.
