Handout image by the US Department of Justice/US Attorney’s Office – District of Massachusetts, presented to jurors on March 23, 2015 in Boston, Massachusetts, shows Dzhokhar Tsarnaev entered as evidence in the Boston Marathon bombing trialThe prosecution rested its case Monday in the trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the ethnic Chechen facing the death penalty for his role in the Boston Marathon bombings. Prosecutors yielded to the defense after summoning 92 witnesses to the stand over the past weeks as they built a case against the 21-year-old as an active and willing participant in the bombings that ripped through crowds gathered near the finish line of the famous race on April 15, 2013. Three people were killed and 264 others wounded in the blasts, the worst in the United States since the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. The prosecution's final witness was forensic expert Henry Nields, who recounted in gruesome detail the injuries suffered by the youngest victim, eight-year-old Martin Richard, who was torn apart by the pressure-cooker bomb that Tsarnaev placed in the crowd near the finish line.

Attorneys for Robin Williams’ wife and children are headed to court in their battle over the late comedian’s estate. The attorneys are scheduled to appear before a San Francisco probate judge on Monday, as they argue over who should get clothes and other personal items the actor kept at one his Northern California homes. In papers filed in December, Williams' wife, Susan, says some of the late actor's personal items were taken without her permission. She has asked the court to set aside the contents of the home she shared with Williams from the jewelry, memorabilia and other items Williams said the children should have. (AP Photo/Katy Winn, File)SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Attorneys for the wife and adult children of Robin Williams have agreed to try to resolve their dispute out of court involving personal items of the late actor.
