Marathon suspect’s widow in court in driving case

WRENTHAM, Mass. (WHDH) — Motor vehicle charges against the widow of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev have been dismissed.

Katherine Tsarnaeva, 24, was pulled over for speeding in August, where she was clocked doing 48 miles an hour in a 30 miles an hour zone.

The officer on the scene discovered that she had been driving with a suspended license. It had been suspended in connection with three surchargeable events.

The car she claimed was registered to her father was also found to be unregistered.

A court clerk said her case was dismissed Thursday morning after she appeared in Wrentham District Court and paid $150 in court costs.

Russell had no comment for reporters.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev died following a shootout with police four days after the April 15 bombing.

Since the bombings, Tsarnaeva has kept a low profile, moving in with her parents in Rhode Island. It’s still unclear if she had any knowledge that her husband and brother-in-law were planning to build pressure cooker bombs.
