Tazhayakov convictedA friend of the man suspected in last year's Boston Marathon bombings was convicted Monday of helping to cover up the crime that left three people dead and more than 250 injured.

A federal jury found Azamat Tazhayakov, 20, guilty of obstruction of justice and conspiracy by hindering the investigation into bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, a friend and fellow student at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth.

Prosecutors said that after Tazhayakov and another friend, Dias Kadyrbayev, determined that Tsarnaev was a suspect in the bombings, they threw out a backpack and removed a laptop from Tsarnaev's dorm room.

Lawyers for Tazhayakov argued that Kadyrbayev had removed the items; prosecutors said Tazhayakov went along with the plan.

"They took materials from that room that they never should have touched, and that's what he is going to pay the price for," juror Daniel Antonin, 49, said after the verdict was announced.

Tazhayakov was convicted of involvement with the backpack, but not the laptop.

Sentencing was set for Oct. 16. Tazhayakov, who could face more than 20 years in prison, was the first of three friends of Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev to face trial stemming from the attack April 15, 2013. Kadyrbayev faces trial in September.
