The two brothers suspected of bombing the Boston Marathon appear to have been motivated by their religious faith but do not seem connected to any Muslim terrorist groups, U.S. officials said Monday after interrogating the severely wounded younger man. He was charged with federal crimes that could bring the death penalty. The younger suspect was charged in his hospital room with using a weapon of mass destruction to kill. He was accused of joining with his older brother in setting off the pressure-cooker bombs that killed three people and wounded more than 200 a week ago.
