Posted: Updated:
Boston, MA -

In Boston, Monday afternoon, a quiet descended on a usually bustling city a week after two bombs killed 3 people and injured hundreds at the Boston Marathon. Meanwhile, the 19 year old suspect in the attack learned the charges against him in his hospital room.

The surviving suspect is now potentially face the death penalty. He had the charges, including using a weapon of mass destruction, read to him today at his hospital bedside.

Just at 2:50 P.M., there was a moment of silence which marked the time the bombs went off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon exactly a week ago.

Among those who lost their lives were 29 year old Krystle Campbell. She was the first of the victims to be laid to rest.

Investigators are still scouring the scene where Krystle along with 2 others were killed and more than 170 were injured.

Much of the investigation is still focused on the surviving suspect's 26 year old brother.
