    Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is pictured in this handout photo presented as evidence by the U.S. Attorney's Office in BostonBy Richard Valdmanis BOSTON (Reuters) - The older brother of convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was transformed from a heavy drinker and drugs user into someone obsessed with Islam after returning from a trip to Russia in 2012, witnesses said on Tuesday. The 21-year-old ethnic Chechen was convicted this month of killing three people and injuring 264 in the bombing, and shooting dead a police officer three days later alongside the older brother, Tamerlan. Rogerio Franca, who lived near the Tsarnaev family in Cambridge, Massachusetts, told jurors Tamerlan was a partier before his trip to Russia but transformed into someone more closely resembling a devout Muslim when he returned. "Most of the time he was drunk, most of the time he was high," Franca said of Tamerlan before his trip.

    Silver makes a comment to the media as he departs an arraignment hearing at the U.S. Federal Courthouse in the Manhattan borough of New YorkBy Tom Brown NEW YORK (Reuters) - Embattled former New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, accused by prosecutors of taking millions of dollars in bribes and kickbacks, will go to trial on Nov. 2 on a sweeping series of corruption charges. A federal judge in Manhattan set the trial date on Tuesday during a hearing in which Silver's lawyers said he pleaded not guilty to all charges in a revised indictment unveiled last week.

The new indictment issued on Thursday by a Manhattan federal grand jury added four new counts to three earlier ones facing the Democratic politician.
