(NECN) - The Boston Marathon bombing suspect’s defense is going to be headed by top federal public defender Miriam Conrad.
According to the New York Daily News, she has a history of handling terror cases before, including 'shoe-bomber' Richard Reid.
So what goes into preparing such a defense?
Attorney and Legal Analyst Wendy Murphy joined NECN to discuss what the defense faces in the trial.
Murphy also spoke to concerns about the impact of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's United States citizenship, saying will be guaranteed a fair trial because of the US Constitution.
“Let’s remind the public that the reason he’s getting due process, this incredible Constitution we have, is because we care that much about liberty. We’re willing to give even the monsters among us, the worst of the worst criminals, a truly fair trial,” Murphy said.
