Lawyers for Boston Marathon bomber file notice of appeal

Lawyers for Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR’ tsahr-NEYE’-ehv) have filed a notice of appeal.

The notice filed Friday with the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals does not give any grounds for appeal. Those will be spelled out later.

A judge this month denied Tsarnaev’s bid for a new trial.

The 22-year-old Tsarnaev was convicted last year and sentenced to death in the bombings, which killed three people and injured more than 260 in April 2013.
