The family of Boston-bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is expected to testify at his trial Monday.
Tsarnaev's family is from a remote area of southwestern Russia and is in the U.S. on the federal government's dime. Something the prosecution is calling an expensive distraction.
The FBI is providing security in the form of 16 staffers to protect the five family members while they're in Boston.
