The sister of accused Boston Marathon bombers Dzokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev has been charged with aggravated harrassment for making a bomb threat against the mother of her boyfriend's children, the New York Post reports:
Ailina Tsarnaeva, who lives in North Bergen, NJ, allegedly phoned the woman at her Harlem home on Monday and warned her to keep her distance or face explosive consequences.
“Leave us alone. I know people who can put a bomb on you,” Tsarnaeva, 23, allegedly said.
Tsarnaeva turned herself in to police after the threat was reported and has since been released.
The article says she was charged with obstruction in 2011 for allegedly lying to police who believed she was connected to individuals suspected of using counterfeit money to pay for a meal at an Applebee's in Dorchester, Massachusetts. That charge was dismissed.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed while attempting to evade arrest. Dzokhar Tsarnaev is still awaiting trial.
