Boston • A judge has set a November trial date for Boston Marathon suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-KHAR’ tsahr-NEYE’-ehv).

Judge George O’Toole Jr. said Wednesday in U.S. District Court that he has set the trial for Nov. 3.

Several of the 260 people injured in the terrorist attack were in the courtroom for the hearing. Tsarnaev is not.

His lawyers had asked for a trial date no earlier than September 2015. Prosecutors want the trial this fall.

They allege that the 20-year-old Tsarnaev and his brother, Tamerlan (TAM’-ehr-luhn), planted two homemade pressure cooker bombs near the marathon’s finish line last April. Tamerlan Tsarnaev died following a shootout with police.

Prosecutors announced last month they will seek the death penalty against Tsarnaev, who has pleaded not guilty to 30 federal counts.
