A father described in excruciating detail Thursday how his little boy was killed, his young daughter lost a leg and his wife was blinded in one eye in the Boston Marathon bombings which ripped his life apart. Bill Richard spoke carefully and calmly at the trial of one of the brothers blamed for the bloodshed, at times pausing to keep his emotions in check, as he gave devastating testimony about how the April 15, 2013 bombings ruptured his family forever. "I saw a little boy who had his body severely damaged by an explosion and I just knew from what I saw that there was no chance," Richard recalled. He told his badly wounded wife that he had to leave her to go to a hospital with the children.
