BOSTON - AP - Three men who attended college with the Boston Marathon suspect have been charged in connection with the case.

Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev are charged with conspiring to obstruct justice. A third man, Robel Phillipos, is charged with making false statements to federal investigators.

An FBI affidavit says the three men removed bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s backpack from his dorm room at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth three days after the bombing.

The affidavit says Tazhayakov and Kadyrbayev agreed to get rid of it after concluding from news reports that Tsarnaev was one of the bombers.

A court appearance for the three is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.

A St. Louis Community College student is waiting anxiously for her accused attacker to be charged.

19-year-old Blythe Grupe was in class in the Communications North building last Thursday when she says a man she didn't know followed her into the women's bathroom on the Meramec campus in Kirkwood and began choking her.  

She tells Fox 2 news she screamed--an instructor rushed to her rescue, restraining the man until police arrived.  Chief Banta says they arrested the 18-year-old male student, but had to let him go until warrants are issued...

"Typically, when we arrest somebody, even for felonies, they can't be held for more than 24-hours."

Grupe says she  wasn't seriously hurt, but she says she won't rest easy until her attacker is prosecuted.  

The  suspect has been banned from campus and the case turned over to the St. Louis County prosecutor.

BOSTON (AP) — Boston police say no suspect has been taken into custody in connection with the explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

Police Commissioner Edward Davis also says that the fire at a library a few miles away and more than an hour later doesn’t appear to be related to the explosions at the race on Monday. He says the fire may have been caused by an incendiary device.

Authorities say the blasts killed two people and injured at least 73.

Police say it’s too early to get into specifics about the nature of devices or whether shrapnel was involved.

It's day two in the trial of a 20-year-old man accused of killing an elderly Vietnamese man in the so-called "knockout game."

Prosecutors say Elex Murphy was one of four teenagers who randomly attacked 72-year-old Hoang Nguyen in April of 2011.

According to police, Nguyen was walking home from a grocery store with his wife in broad daylight near Spring and Chippewa, when then 18-year-old Murphy and the group of teens attacked the couple. Police say Murphy punched Nguyen in the head and then punched his wife in the eye. Nguyen later died at St. Louis University Hospital.

In the "knockout game" people are chosen at random and beaten, with the attacks often captured on cell phone video. 

Murphy wept silently in court yesterday as Nguyen's widow described the deadly attack.

The Hannibal Courier-Post reports that the incident happened Monday. The boy, who is about 10, had a tetanus shot and is OK.

Burger King Twitter Account hacked

By Dashiell Bennett | The Atlantic Wire --
It seems that the officially verified Twitter account of the Burger King has become the victim of a prank, since the account just announced they were sold to McDonald's and all their employees are on drugs.

Here's the initial series of tweets, preserved for posterity since typically these things get cleaned up pretty fast.

As of 12:30 p.m. ET, the account is still under the control of ... someone, possibly related to to empty account @DFNCTSC. Will we ever find out what those letters mean? Keep following @BurgerKing—not to be confused with the real @McDonalds—though why you're following any fast food chain on Twitter escapes us.
