(Newser) – Boston is now rid of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who has been transferred to a federal prison medical facility about 40 miles west of the city. "Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been transported from the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and is now confined at the Bureau of Prisons facility FMC Devens at Ft. Devens, Massachusetts," says an official. The amount of time he spends at the local facility hinges on whether prosecutors decide to pursue execution, NBC News notes. Attorney General Eric Holder will ultimately make the call, but he likely won't do so for several months.

Meanwhile, Tsarnaev's parents have left their home in Dagestan—but they're not headed to the US, at least for now. Instead, they're going elsewhere in Russia, CNN reports. Zubeidat Tsarnaeva cites her husband's health; she called him an ambulance yesterday, but gave no details on his condition. (Meanwhile, the Tsarnaevs' carjacking victim tells his story.)
