What jury will consider in Boston bombing?

"I was, frankly, surprised that they called any because they had admitted that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was a participant in these terrorist bombings," CBS News legal analyst Rikki Klieman said. "What [the defense witnesses] were called were evidence gatherers. People who got cell phone records, people who looked at the computers, people who looked at fingerprints just to show again it's Tamerlan, Tamerlan, Tamerlan, the older brother."
