7:07 am
below for parts of the northern plains this morning. more than 6 inches of snow is possible as a clipper system moves from the northern plains through to the east coast. in the west, it's all about a storm system bringing possibly heavy rain and high mountain snows that will also create an avalanche risk across parts of the cascades in the beginning of this week. 52 in seattle today. 77 in los angeles. about 62 in los angeles. while the coldest air of the season settles in in the east we'll get warmer than average temperatures in the west this week. charlie. >> megan, thanks. jury selection begins this morning in the boston marathon bombing trial. nearly two years after the attack. dzhokhar tsarnaev is accused of being involved in the plot that killed three and injured more than 260 others. don dahler is at the federal courthouse in boston where it may take weeks to pick jurors. don, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, and good morning to our viewers in the west. it might take that long to seat a jury because this is a death penalty case in a state that traditionally opposes the death
7:08 am
penalty. clark and her team's attorneys are considered all-stars, experts at keeping their clients off death row. dzhokhar tsarnaev faces dozens of charges ranging from four counts of murder to using a weapon of mass destruction. the evidence against him includes eyewitnesses and surveillance video which allegedly put him and his brother at the scene. forensic evidence as well as statements which prosecutors say implicate him. the defense has implied in court documents and motions it plans to show tsarnaev was under the psychological control of his older brother tamerlan. cbs legal analyst rikki klieman. >> what this defense wants to show is whether or not this was a young man who was influenced and under the influence of his older brother who was the mastermind. >> reporter: lead defensive attorney judy clark will also look to spare dzhokhar tsarnaev's life. she has defended high-profile
7:09 am
people in the past like the unabomber, ted kaczynski, olympic bomber eric rudolph and jared lautner. all were found guilty but all were kept off death row. >> the defense team is looking for one thing only here and that is to save his life. it's not a question of whether he will be proven guilty or found not guilty. they are looking to avoid the death penalty. >> reporter: under orders from attorney general eric holder, the 21-year-old has been held in total isolation in a medical prison facility north of boston. he has limited access to news and mail is fed through a slit in his door and his weekly visits by family members are monitored by the fbi. many of those who survived the bombing see this trial as an opportunity to add some closure. heather abbott plans to be in the courtroom. >> i think it will be a milestone to have it, you know be put in the past and kind of able to move on. >> reporter: the defense team
7:10 am
has objected to those restrictions imposed by eric holder. they say they haven't been able to mount a defense because of the involvement of the fbi. they have also applied for a change of venue numerous times. judge george o'toole has denied those requests. >> don, thank you. alleged cop killer eric frein arrived at a courthouse in pennsylvania this morning. today's preliminary hearing comes about two members after he was captured at the end of a lengthy manhunt. prosecutors say the 31-year-old ambushed a state police trooper. outside police barracks in september. frein was caught in october. today's hearing could shed light on his alleged confession right after his arrest. new york city said farewell and thank you sunday to police officer wenjian liu. his funeral came more than two weeks after liu and his partner were murdered in their patrol car. once again, many mourners in uniform used the occasion to show their anger toward mayor bill de blasio. elaine quijano is outside the funeral home in brooklyn that held the service. elaine, good morning. >> reporter: good morning.
7:11 am
the funeral held here was the first to be held for a chinese-american nypd officer killed in the line of duty, but as with the services for officer rafael ramos last week, tension between the police and the mayor bubbled over. they came by the thousands, officers from across the city and the country standing in the rain to honor wenjian liu. for the second time in eight days, the new york police department said good-bye to one of their own. mayor bill de blasio praised liu as a good man. >> he walked a path of courage, a path of sacrifice, and a path of kindness. this is who he was. >> reporter: but as he spoke, some police officers outside the funeral home turned their backs. a thick blue line of discontent, ignoring a warning issued by
7:12 am
nypd commissioner william bratton. a hero's funeral is about grieving, not grievance, bratton wrote in a memo. when you don the uniform of this department, you are bound by the tradition, honor and decency that goes with it. retired nypd officer walter litty says police are united by a special brotherhood. >> when you feel that you don't have the support of the people that really should have your backs, the people in government, that bond gets that much stronger. >> not every officer took part in the snub but the scene was similar to one last weekend at the funeral of liu's partner rafael ramos. there was hope it would be different this time. on saturday officers actually saluted de blasio during li u's wake. on sunday liu's widow was presented with the nypd flag just three months after their wedding. she spoke through tears. >> we loved you. i loved you. i will forever love you.
7:13 am
>> she called him her best friend and said he took pride in being an nypd police officer. liu's father said he called him every day at the end of his shift to say that he was okay. liu was honored with a service that blended nypd tradition and buddhist custom. >> all right, elaine, thank you so much. the search is intensifying this morning to find the black boxes from air asia 8501 eight days after the crash. ships and searchers from other countries are combing the sea. allen pizzey is monitoring the search from a command center in surabaya, indonesia. allen, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. an indonesian navy captain said he was confident his ship had contacted the section where the
7:14 am
black boxes may have been. but none were found and there was no ping. ships with special equipment for detecting their telltale pings are scanning the area where five plarge pieces of wreckage were detected over the weekend. "uss ft. worth" is equipped with what's called towfish sonar. >> it gives us an image on the sea bottom. we can find something as small as a golf ball or as big as an airplane. >> reporter: the hunt for bodies and debris on the surface has been winded to account for an eastward current. a royal malaysia navy ship collected a bag with shoes and a pair of glasses, poignant reminders that nearly 130 people are still missing. the bodies and debris recovered so far have not had any burn marks, which aviation experts say rules out an on-board explosion, leaving the options of a catastrophic nose-dive or an attempt to belly land on the sea during bad weather. an agency has concluded that icing caused by a storm the plane couldn't avoid was a triggering factor in the
7:15 am
december 28th crash. that matters little in a special mourning area where families wait to bury their dead. the signs are messages of respect, the equivalent of tributes on an obituary page. limantara was 30 years old. she was going on holiday with her father. he hasn't been found yet. in the latest twist of controversy on whether the air asia flight was operating illegally, the transport said it was suspending the operator of the airport from where the flight took off. gayle? >> thank you, allen. some high-profile playoff matches are set this morning for the nfl. referees called pass interference on dallas but then for some reason that penalty just went away. detroit had to punt instead of getting first down. the cowboys went on to win that one 24-20. there were a whole lot of questions after that game. the officials finally said that the interference call was wrong and they should have explained that one on the field.
7:16 am
>> mm. so here are the matchups this weekend. baltimore plays at new england saturday. while carolina goes to seattle. then on sunday dallas visits green bay. and indianapolis takes on denver. you can see that game right here on cbs. >> meanwhile carolina's head coach has other problems to think about. ron rivera's home in charlotte caught fire this morning. it took firefighters an hour to control the flames. no injuries are reported. and this morning fans from lebron james to president obama are mourning the loss of stuart scott. the longtime espn anchor died yesterday after a seven-year battle with cancer. he was only 49 years old. espn "sportscenter" honored scott last night by leaving his usual chair empty. scotts was a ground breaking personality on a cable network that changed american sports. >> hi, again. thanks for letting "sportscenter" flow. kicking it with linda kohn. i am stuart scott. >> reporter: he was a pioneer in sports broadcasting with the style and flavor all his own.
7:17 am

7:18 am
i still love this man. and the fact that he has passed away is absolutely mind-boggling. >> reporter: scott's death was immediately felt throughout the sports world. >> today we choose not to say that stuart lost to cancer at the age of 49. instead we'll simply say that we all lost stuart. >> and he won't even know this. he was a role model for me and hundreds of other african-american journalists/athletes now who want to be legitimate. >> reporter: stuart will forever be remembered as a trailblazing professional with a remarkable enthusiasm for the craft he dedicated his life to and as a loving father. >> when you die, it does not mean that you lose to cancer. you beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and in the manner
7:19 am
in which you live. >> reporter: for "cbs this morning," james brown, washington. >> he sounds like somebody you wish you knew. >> yes, he was just awesome. the love of his children and his job. was just infectious. and his saying like gravy on a biscuit, it's all good. he will be so missed. >> he called his daughters his heartbeat. it is 7:19. ahead, a wealthy new york neighborhood rocked by a deadly shooting. the victim is a $200 million hedge fund manager. what police and neighbors are good morning, we are off to a clear but cool start. cleat take a look at some of the numbers around the bay area as you head out the door. 39 in fremont, 49 in san francisco, 45 degrees in red wood city. going to be warmer today. look at this afternoon high, 65 in red wood city, 60 degrees in vallejo and 62 degrees in concord. warmer still tomorrow with the clouds and cooler weather returning thursday through the weekend.

7:48 am
to a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but now, with once-a-day xarelto®, jim's on the move. jim's doctor recommended xarelto®. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce afib-related stroke risk. but xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem that doesn't require regular blood monitoring. so jim's not tied to that monitoring routine. gps: proceed to the designated route. not today. for patients currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. xarelto® is just one pill a day taken with the evening meal. plus, with no known dietary restrictions jim can eat the healthy foods he likes. don't stop taking xarelto® rivaroxaban, unless your doctor tells you to. while taking xarelto®, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding
7:49 am
if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding and in rare cases, may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto® watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. jim changed his routine. ask your doctor about xarelto®. once-a-day xarelto® means no regular blood monitoring, no known dietary restrictions. for information and savings options, download the xarelto® patient center app call 1-888-xarelto or visit goxarelto.com. if you have medicare part d, walgreens gets that you might be at the corner of "looking for a good deal" and "sheesh, i wish i'd looked some more." that's why walgreens makes it

>> boy was it. katy was unaccustomed to american hospitals and health care. she worried that she and her fiance would be stuck with bills they couldn't afford and while they do have to manage the expense of living in new york for the next few months, one thing they don't have to worry about, the hospital bills. british couple lee johnson and katy amos thought a quick trip across the pond between christmas and new year's would be a piece of cake. pregnant with her first child she was beginning her third trimester. three days into their trip and on a tour of manhattan central park katy suddenly went into labor 11 weeks early. the couple headed to lenox hill hospital on new york's upper east side. >> at what point did it dawn on you i might be in a pickle. >> i looked at you and i said maybe these are contractions and you look at me and said really?
8:22 am
that's when. when i went to the hospital and i was laid out on the bed and they were checking me and they were like, yeah, you're dilating, and i'm like i'm having a baby in new york. >> katy delivered baby dax, all 3 pounds 4 ounces of him and they rushed him to the neonatal care unit. >> i said i want to go home. they said you're not going home. >> nearly three months early dax has to develop under the supervision of doctors and that could take time according to amy marshal, the manager of nicu. >> before he goes home he has to get bigger, get off any respiratory support and eat on his own. >> that could be march. >> katy and lee are both self-employed personal trainers with no money coming in. lisa, a nurse navigator has helped to guide the couple giving birth in new york. >> this is quite supreme.

8:33 am
steven brill has spent years discovering it. his new book is "america's bitter pill." steven brill is with us this morning. steven, good morning. >> good morning. >> so the president promised not only would health care be more accessible but it would also be more affordable. is that true? >> it's certainly more accessible to tens of millions of americans and it's more affordable to them because they're getting their insurance premiums paid for in large part by the government. so it's certainly not more affordable for the tax pairs. we basically have created a system where the good news is that many more people get the kind of health care you and i get. the bad news is that the taxpayers are paying for it and they're paying the sameexorbitant prices. >> you know the main question is
8:34 am
the cost. >> the cost. >> did obama do anything to bring down the cost? >> no. as i recount in the book, at every turn when they try to do something substantive to brick the cost down such as control the price of drugs, deal with the exorbitant non-profit hospital high profits, they were stopped by the lobbyists. and the best test of all this is the only way that a bill this big will pass in washington is if the powers that be decided that it should pass. so the drug companies are making more money, the hospitals, the medical disease makers are making more money and everybody is happy except the taxpayer. >> but is it what the president said it was going to be or are you saying no it's not. it's his fault in terms of lobbyists and others? >> the president said two things. more people would have access to health care. >> and they do. >> and they do.
8:35 am
