Judge denies Tsarnaev's lawyers request to photograph his ‘evolving mental and physical state’

A federal magistrate has refused a request from Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's lawyers to take "current and periodic" photos of Tsarnaev throughout his recovery at the federal Bureau of Prisons medical facility in Devens, Massachusetts.

The lawyers say they want the photos to provide evidence of Tsarnaev's "evolving mental and physical state" in federal custody.
