Tsarnaev was home when his wife left for work the last day he was alive, DeLuca said. Police say he was run over by a car driven by his brother as he fled gunfire early Friday morning. His brother was captured later that night, wounded and bloody, in Watertown, 10 miles west of Boston; his lawyer has declined to comment.
DeLuca said she learned of her husband was suspected of being responsible for bombing the Boston Marathon the same way a lot of other people did: on TV.
Her other lawyer, Miriam Weizenbaum, said on Tuesday that reports of her husband and brother-in-law's involvement in the bombings came as a shock to Tsarnaeva and her family and said she deeply mourned the loss of innocent victims.
Tsarnaeva, she said, was trying to come to terms with the events.
