According to an article published by the Concord Monitor on Feb. 13, a trial date has been set for accused terrorist, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

The Concord Monitor reports that despite a request from Tsarnaev's attorneys to have his trial no sooner than September 2015, a judge has set the trial date for Nov. 3, 2014. Reports indicated that U.S. District Judge George O’Toole Jr. said he thinks scheduling the trial for November is "realistic and fair."

Tsarnaev faces 30 charges in connection with his alleged role in the April 15 bombings during the 117th running of the Boston Marathon. His charges include murder, using a weapon of mass destruction, and with malicious destruction of property resulting in death. Authorities say he and his older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev set off two bombs near the finish line of the marathon killing three people and injuring more than 250 others.

In January officials announced plans to seek the death penalty for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
