Injuries detailed in Boston bombing

The Boston Marathon bombing suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, suffered multiple injuries, including a bullet wound that fractured his skull, before his capture, according to court documents released Monday.

Tsarnaev's injuries were detailed during a federal court hearing at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, held days after he was captured. The transcript describing his wounds had been among the documents in the case sealed by the court. Tsarnaev, 20, has pleaded not guilty to 30 federal charges for the April 15 bombings. Three people were killed.
