DOSWELL, Va. (AP) - The Virginia woman whose actions led to Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev being buried about 30 miles north of her Richmond home said she has no regrets despite an angry backlash from local officials and some cemetery neighbors.
Martha Mullen, a mental health counselor in private practice and a graduate of United Theological Seminary in Dayton, Ohio, helped arrange for the burial Thursday at a small Islamic cemetery in Caroline County after hearing on the radio about the difficulty finding a burial spot for Tsarnaev.
His body had remained at a Worcester, Mass., funeral parlor since he was killed April 19 in a gunfight with police, days after the deadly bombings.
