(AP) A sister of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects has appeared in a New Jersey courtroom on marijuana possession and distribution charges.


Bella Tsarnaeva's (tsahr-NEYE'-eh-vuhz) criminal record likely will be cleared.


The Record newspaper reports that Bergen County prosecutors have said they'll admit her into a pretrial intervention program. But the case was adjourned Monday while lawyers continue to work out a plea deal for her boyfriend.


Police responding to a domestic violence call in December searched the couple's Fairview home after officers said they smelled marijuana.


Tsarnaeva's brother Dzhokhar (joh-HAHR') is charged with carrying out the April 15 attacks in Boston with his older brother, who died in a police shootout.


The sister has never been implicated in the Boston attacks.
