Boston bombings suspect charged with using weapon of mass destruction, faces death penalty

The Chechen-origin Boston bombings suspect has been charged with conspiring to use a "weapon of mass destruction" and faces death penalty. A criminal complaint filed by the FBI said that the lone surviving suspect apparently used a cell phone to trigger the pressure cooker bomb.

The FBI filed the complaint against 19-year-old Dzhokhar,as he was produced before a district court which temporarily was his hospital room where he is being treated of injuries.

Dzhokhar's brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, was pronounced dead on Friday after suffering shrapnel and bullet wounds in a gunfight with police. Dzhokhar was later arrested in connection with the bombings that killed three people and wounded 180 others.
