“I can’t describe it,” Tsarni said of the body-washing process. “What’s done is done.”

Three others have been arrested in the investigation of the Marathon bombings, accused of helping Dzhokhar Tsarnaev after the fact. One of them, Robel Phillipos, 19, of Cambridge, is scheduled for a detention hearing Monday in US District Court in Boston.
Six people filed affidavits in federal court Sunday night in support of releasing Phillipos, including a principal and teacher at a former school he attended, the head of a summer program Phillipos was enrolled in one summer, and an educational researcher who monitored classes Phillipos attended. Eight other letters of support for him were filed Saturday.
