Boston Bombing Suspect in Court

Nearly three months after the deadly Boston Marathon attack, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will be arraigned in Boston where he could come face-to-face with some survivors.

Tsarnaev will make the hour long journey from prison in Fort Devens, MA to the federal courthouse in Boston, CNN's Deborah Feyerick reports. The arraignment is set for 3:30pm ET.

There are 30 charges against him, including the use of a weapon of mass destruction, which is a charge that carries a potential death penalty.

"A number of families are expected to be in court, the court's been very accommodating," says Feyerick. "They've reached out to let the families know that there will be space for them if they want to come."

For some, it is an important part of the process. They want to get a sense of who this person is and why he may have done it.
