The widow of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev has hired a criminal lawyer with experience defending terrorism cases as she continues to face questions from federal authorities.

Attorney Amato DeLuca said Wednesday his client Katherine Russell has added New York lawyer Joshua Dratel to her legal team. He says Russell will continue to meet with investigators and answer questions.

DeLuca and Miriam Weizenbaum have been representing Russell, who has been staying with her family in Rhode Island and hasn't been charged with any crime. They specialize in civil cases such as personal injury law.

An FBI spokeswoman wouldn't comment when asked whether Russell is cooperating.

DeLuca has said Russell had no reason to suspect her husband and his brother in the deadly April 15 bombing.
