Boston Marathon bombing, April 15, 2013

Editor's note: The US federal court in Massachusetts today has started to release pages of documents related to the Boston Marathon bombing case. The move comes after both prosecutors and attorneys for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev came to an agreement on more than 600 documents to be unsealed, which a judge then ordered Tuesday. As NECN reporter Alysha Palumbo notes, some of the documents classified as "unsealed" contain portions already released. We'll be watching and report on any new facts of interest to the story. - Tricia
