BOSTON (AP) - Two men who attended college with the Boston Marathon suspect and are charged with conspiring to obstruct justice have waived bail.
Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev appeared in court Wednesday and agreed to voluntarily detention.
Their next hearing is scheduled for May 14.
A third man, Robel Phillipos, is charged with making false statements to federal investigators. He awaits a court appearance.
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.
