Bombing suspect's probable cause hearing pushed back

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- A probable cause hearing for surviving Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been moved to July.

Magistrate Judge Marianne Bowler approved a joint motion seeking that the hearing be rescheduled for July 2 at the earliest. There is no word on the rescheduled date.

The 19-year-old bombing suspect's hearing was originally scheduled to take place on May 30. Both prosecutors and Tsarnaev's attorneys requested more time citing the "need for adequate time to obtain and review evidence."

Tsarnaev is charged with using a weapon of mass destruction resulting in death and malicious destruction of property resulting in death. He is being held at FMC Devens.

The alleged mastermind of the bombings, 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev, died on April 18 as a result of injuries sustained in a shootout with police and after being hit by a car driven by his younger brother.
