How a 19-year-old Stoner Became the Accused Boston Bomber

Listen closely to the testimony in federal court and you begin to learn how a 19-year-old stoner who played Jay-Z, watched "The Walking Dead" and referred to himself on a resume as "nice" and a "people person" came to embrace violent global jihad. The government has built a compelling case for guilt: Testimony has ranged from bombing survivors' dramatic accounts to fellow officers who found a rookie executed for his gun; from a frantic carjacking victim to a final showdown in a sleeping suburb that embedded a pressure cooker in a car door and sent bullets through the walls of a second-story bedroom. Prosecutors will likely rest their case against accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on Monday. And then Tsarnaev's lawyers will get their turn. Their presentation is expected to be brief; the defense admits he did it and doesn't dispute many of the facts, just how they are being spun.
