More prospective jurors filled out questionnaires Tuesday for the trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, accused in the Boston Marathon bombings two years ago. Tsarnaev clasped and unclasped his hands and occasionally tugged at his beard as the judge read instructions.

Picking a jury is expected to take the better part of three weeks, and opening statements are expected the week of Jan. 26. Tsarnaev is charged with 30 federal counts in the bombings, which killed three people and injured more than 260. He could get the death penalty if convicted.
