Panel reviewing benefits given to family of bombing suspects

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - A legislative committee has been meeting behind closed doors at the Statehouse to review whether the Boston Marathon bombing suspects improperly received public benefits.

Members of the House Post Audit and Oversight Committee met Thursday with interim commissioner of the Massachusetts Department of Transitional Assistance Stacey Monahan to discuss the benefits.
 
As she headed into the meeting, Monahan declined to say how much the family may have received in benefits. She said it was part of an ongoing investigation she's ordered into the case history.
 
She said as soon as that review was completed, she would share it with the committee.
The head of the committee has previously said the panel is reviewing more than 400 pages of documents collected from state agencies that may have provided benefits to the suspects or their families since 2002.
