(Newser) – Prison files on Dzhokhar Tsarnaev—including suicide watch logs—are to be turned over to the Boston bombing suspect's lawyers by order of a federal judge, Reuters reports. His defense team says it wants to track his condition while he is in prison for evidence of "voluntariness of his statements" to investigators. The 19-year-old is being held in a prison hospital in Massachusetts, and against the wishes of his defense team the prison files will also be made available to prosecutors.
