BOSTON - Void of any emotion during the months of testimony in the trial against him, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev appeared to be moved to tears when one of his aunts took the stand Monday.
Patimat Suleimanova, sister of Tsarnaev's mother Zubeidat, was escorted off of the witness stand as she sobbed, unable to compose herself or speak.
As she passed him, Tsarnaev wiped under his eyes and nose with a tissue.
Three of Tsarnaev's female cousins testified for the defense. Each described him as a happy, warm, young child. None of them have seen the convicted Boston Marathon bomber since he was 8 years old.
One cousin recalled Tsarnaev as a 4-year-old, crying while watching "The Lion King" when one of the characters died. They said he "understood tragedy."
During cross examination, the government said, "someone who cries at a cartoon but is indifferent to the death and suffering of innocent people ..." The defense quickly objected and they were unable to finish their statement.
As Tsarnaev left the courtroom for the lunch break, he smiled and blew a kiss to his family.
