Lawyers for the wife of the deceased Boston Marathon bombing suspect say she is doing everything she can to assist authorities.

But they wouldn't say Tuesday if Katherine Tsarnaeva, widow of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, has spoken to investigators yet.

Providence attorneys Amato DeLuca and Miriam Weizenbaum issued a statement Tuesday saying Tsnarnaeva is deeply mourning the bombing victims. They say that Tsarnaeva and her family were in shock when they learned of allegations against her husband and brother-in-law, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

The lawyers say Tsarnaeva, whose toddler is the daughter of the late suspect, is "trying to come to terms with these events."

DeLuca told the Associated Press on Sunday that federal investigators want to speak with his client. They wouldn't comment Tuesday beyond the statement.
