PHOTO: 2007 Mug Shot of Katherine Russell, Wife of Boston Bombing Suspect

A 2007 mugshot of Katherine Russell has just surfaced. Prior to marrying Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, she was arrested for shoplifting $67 worth of merchandise from Old Navy. She was 18 years old at the time.

Criminal Defense Attorney Jonna Spilbor joined Studio B today to provide more perspective on how Russell will fit into the FBI’s investigation.

Spilbor said that there’s every possibility that Russell may never be charged with any crime, but said, “Though, Shep, between me and you, she’s the wife. She lived in the house. When he was on the computer shopping for bomb-making materials, was she in the kitchen cooking? What was she doing?”
