LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Two of the three suspects who attended college with the Boston Marathon suspect are charged with conspiring to obstruct justice and have waived bail.

Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev appeared in court on May 1 and agreed to voluntary detention.

Their next hearing is scheduled for May 14.

A third man, Robel Phillipos, is charged with making false statements to federal investigators. He remains jailed while awaiting his next court appearance.

An FBI affidavit says the three men removed bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's backpack from his dorm room at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth three days after the bombing.

Three people were killed and more than 260 injured on April 15 when two bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

Suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev died after a gunfight with police several days later. His brother, was captured and remains incarcerated in a hospital prison.

Both are Russian natives who lived for several years in the U.S.
