Reports: No charges expected Sunday against Boston suspect

The surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing will not be charged Sunday, according to multiple reports.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, remained in serious but stable condition at an area hospital, reportedly suffering from a bullet wound to the throat, according to Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis.

Davis declined to say whether authorities believe police shot him, or whether he attempted to take his own life following a manhunt that spanned multiple days.

An FBI team was to be brought in to question Tsanrnaev once he is able to communicate, Davis said. But that had not occurred Sunday.

“He’s in no condition to be interrogated at this time,” Davis said.

Christina Sterling, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney General’s Massachusetts office said late Sunday afternoon that she could not comment on how soon charges would be filed.

But both CNN and USA Today, citing the U.S. Attorney’s office, said no charges would be filed until Monday at the soonest.
