The sister of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was arraigned in a Manhattan court Tuesday for bomb threats she allegedly made to a Harlem woman in August.

Alina Tsarnaeva, 24, told a woman once romantically linked with her boyfriend, George Briones, that she “know[s] people that can put a bomb where you live,” said Assistant District Attorney Jennifer Abreu, the New York Post reported.


Ms. Abreu told the judge that Ms. Tsarnaeva ignored an order for protection issued for her boyfriend’s former lover, and that she was charged with obstruction of an ongoing investigation in 2008, the Post reported.

Susan Marcus, Ms. Tsarnaeva’s attorney, said that her client is “an easy target” and “strongly disputes that the statements were made,” the Post reported.

Ms. Tsarnaeva’s bail was set at $5,000. She is scheduled to return to court Oct. 10.
