Boston Marathon bombing suspect is scheduled to go on trial Monday in Boston

Posted: Updated:

Despite efforts by his attorneys', Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokar Tsarnaev is scheduled to go on trial Monday in Boston.

The 21-year-old's legal team appealed the judge's decision to keep the trial in Boston and begin jury selection on Monday.

They argued Tsarnaev cannot receive a fair trial in Boston's federal courthouse, and they want the case moved out of state.

Federal prosecutors are opposed to moving the trial and want to proceed on Monday.

Tsarnaev has pleaded not guilty in the April 2013 bombing.

He is facing the death penalty.
