Boston bomber appears in court

(NBC News) Accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev appeared in court for the first time since July 2013 Thursday, arriving at Boston’s federal courthouse before dawn under heavy security.

Prosecutors wanted Tsarnaev to attend the hearing so the judge could ask him whether he’s satisfied with his defense team.

Tsarnaev said he is.

It’s the final hearing before jury selection begins in January.

Tsarnaev’s lawyers have requested that the trial be moved out of Boston, and say they will also ask for a delay in the trial’s start date.
