Inside The 'Slipaway II': Site Of Tsarnaev's Last Stand

Download Audio

Jurors in the trial of admitted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were taken to an undisclosed location in South Boston Monday morning. Two by two, they were shown the bullet-riddled boat where Tsarnaev hid from police and was ultimately captured on April 19, 2013.

The defense and prosecution have been fighting over how to introduce the 22-foot craft into evidence during the trail, and, Monday, jurors got a firsthand look.

WBUR senior reporter David Boeri was the pool reporter with jurors and got a look at the boat himself.
