(Reuters) - Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev filed a motion in federal court on Monday seeking a new trial, according to court records.

Lawyers for Tsarnaev, who was sentenced to death by a U.S. jury in May for helping to carry out the 2013 attack that killed three people and wounded 264 others, said a new trial is required in the interest of justice, according to court documents.
