Charges dropped against Boston bombing suspect's widow

Posted: Updated:

Two motor vehicle charges against the widow of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev have been dismissed.

Katherine Russell was charged with driving with a suspended license, speeding and driving an unregistered motor vehicle in Franklin in August.

The suspended license and unregistered vehicle were dismissed.

Russell's lawyer said she was moving around a lot during a traumatic time in her life and may not have realized her license had been suspended.

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

His brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has pleaded not guilty and is awaiting trial.
