PorAmanda Gigliotti | Repórter do The Christian Post

Alleged Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev pleaded not guilty in his first courtroom appearance, in Boston, since April’s deadly terrorist attack.

Tsarnaev, 19, said, “Not guilty” in a Russian accent as each charge was read about half-dozen times.

According to media reports, he entered the court at 3:30 p.m. dressed in an orange prison suit.

He is facing 30 charges, including the using a weapons of mass destruction and killing four people. More than half of the 30 charges are capital offences.

Tsarnaev was arrested on April 19 when he was found hiding in a boat in a suburban backyard.

The April 15 bombing attack killed left at least three people dead and more than 260 injured.

According to authorities Tsarnaev orchestrated the attack along with his brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev. Tamerlan died in a shootout with police some days after the bombing.

Tsarnaev’s two sisters appeared in the court while his parents remained back in Russia.

Tsarnaev can face death penalty as he is being charged under federal law. The death penalty was banned in Massachusetts in 1984, but only for state cases.
