On Friday, April 19, 2013, thousands of officers were swarming the streets in and around Boston hunting for Tsarnaev's younger brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19.

A federal judge on Wednesday set a November trial date for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev over the objections of defense attorneys who said that will not give them enough time to prepare.

Judge George O'Toole Jr. said he believes a Nov. 3 trial is realistic and fair.

Tsarnaev's lawyers had asked for a trial date no earlier than September 2015. Prosecutors, who are seeking the death penalty for Tsarnaev, want the trial this autumn.

Tsarnaev has pleaded not guilty to 30 federal counts in the April 15 bombings that killed three people and injured 260 others. Several of those injured in the bombings were in court on Wednesday, but Tsarnaev was not.
