Two new developments in the case against accused Boston bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

On Wednesday, the judge presiding over the trial ruled to delay it by two months.

It will now start on January 5th, 2015 instead of in November, as originally planned.

The decision comes after Tsarnaev’s defense team asked the judge for more time to prepare its evidence.

In the same ruling, the judge denied the defense’s request to move the trial out of Massachusetts, saying that he believes a fair jury can be found in the state.

21-year-old,Tsarnaev is accused of planting bombs at the 2013 Boston Marathon, killing three people and wounding more than 260 others.

If convicted, Tsarnaev could face the death penalty.
