Widow of Boston bomber starting to reject strict Muslim rules
Washington: The widow of Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev has started to reject the strict Muslim rules her husband imposed upon her.
Katherine Russell, 24, has started wearing nail polish and eating fast food, which her late husband had forbidden her to follow.
According to the New York Daily News, a source close to the family told the National Enquirer that before she knew Tamerlan, Katherine was just an average all-American girl.
Russell, who changed her name back to her maiden name from Karima Tsarnaeva, is living with her parents in North Kingstown, R.I. since Tamerlan's death.
Russell's family said she has started to drift away from the more extreme beliefs of her late husband.
The source said that Katherine's family would like her to revert to her Christian faith.
Her attorney has said Russell knew nothing about the Boston Marathon bombing plans that killed three and injured 264.
