BOSTON (AP) -- The body of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev is still being held by the Massachusetts medical examiner.

Tsarnaev died Friday after a gun battle with police. Authorities have said his 19-year-old brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, ran over him as he fled.

Dzhokhar was later apprehended in Watertown and has been charged with using a weapon of mass destruction. He could face the death penalty.

A spokesman for the Massachusetts Office of the Chief Medical Examiner said Wednesday that Tamerlan Tsarnaev's body is still in the medical examiner's custody. He wouldn't comment on whether Tsarnaev's wife has asked to claim the body.

Authorities say the brothers planted two bombs near the finish line of the marathon April 15. Three people were killed and more than 200 were wounded.
