Boston bombers’ sister threatens boyfriend’s ex with a bomb; turns herself in

One brother is dead and another is awaiting trial for detonating two bombs near the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon, but that sobering reality failed to stop their sister from threatening to blow up a rival.

Ailina Tsarnaev, the sister of bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev — brother Tamerlan Tsarnaeva died in a gunbattle with police — allegedly threatened the mother of her boyfriend’s kids over the phone, the local Fox affiliate reported.

“Leave us alone,” she allegedly told the woman, according to My Fox Boston. “I know people who can put a bomb on you.”

Ms. Tsarnaeva turned herself in and was charged with aggravated harassment.

This is her second encounter with law enforcement, having been linked to a counterfeiting case in 2011 — the charges against her were later dismissed.
