  The number of people caught up in the Boston Marathon bombing case has grown.   Federal authorities say they have arrested three friends of surviving bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in connection with the case.   Ed Payne tells us what they stand accused of doing.   They're not accused in the attack itself, but Das Kadyrbayev, Azamat Taxhayakov and Robel Phillipos are charged with taking and disposing of key pieces of evidence.   Authorities say after photos of the bombing suspcects went public, Kadyrbayev sent Dzhokhar Tsarnaev a text, asking is he was involved in the attack.   An FBI affidavit states Tsarnaev responded "lol" and later told him to take whatever he wanted from his room.   Investigators say the three men agreed to meet at Tsarnaev's dorm room, found a backpack, fireworks and Vaseline, and took them, along with a laptop.   Phillipos says the men realized Tsarnaev was a bombing suspect after seeing a CNN Report and decided to dump the backpack.   Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz says this admission could strengthen the case against them.   "They were engaging in willfull blindness. They should have not prevented themselves from learning. You don't just throw away a computer after a bombing like this when you see other kind of evidence, including the Vaseline," Dershowitz says.   Phillipos is a U.S. citizen and met Tsarnaev in high school.   Tazhayakov and Kadyrbayevare Kazahk are nationals in the U.S. on student visas.   An attorney for one of the suspects says his client is not involved and is working with investigators.   "Mr. Dias Kadrbayev, who cooperated with all law enforcement when they came to him, without the benefit of counsel to assist them in their investigation of this horrible tragedy," says Robert Stahl, attorney for Dias Kadybayev.   If Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev are found guilty, they could each face up to five years in prison and $250,000 in fines.   If Robel Phillipos is found guilty, he could face up to eight years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
