(NECN: Jen Eagan, Worcester, Mass.) - Officials may be a little closer to a resolution in the battle over where to bury Tamerlan Tsarnaev. We're now hearing from the Vermont man who's offering to give up a family plot in Connecticut for Tsarnaev.

There have been meetings between officials and the Worcester funeral director throughout the day on Tuesday.

Boston Mayor Tom Menino was asked how he would feel if it ended up being Boston.

“I wouldn’t allow him to buried in a city cemetery, that’s for sure,” the Mayor said.

He was insistent the grave for the suspected Boston bomber won’t be in the city.

“It’s not dignified to put him in Boston. He’s not from Boston. He’s from someplace else and he needs to go back to his homeland,” Menino said.

For now, the problem is still in the hands of Graham Putnam & Mahoney Funeral Home.

Worcester Sgt. Kerry Hazelhurst says there has been feedback from certain areas that there may be a possibility of a location, but still nothing definite.

Jen Eagan has more.
