SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

Could Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's trial be held here in Western Mass?

He will be tried in a federal court.

It's too early on in the investigation to know when and where the accused bomber will face charges.

Some legal experts have pointed to Western Mass as a potential location.  

Legal analyst Alan Dershowitz was on CNN's Piers Morgan and had this to say.

"It'll either be held, it will start in the federal court in Massachusetts. The lawyer will move to separate out the crimes, certainly of killing the policeman. There will be a federal magistrate and there will be no bail granted. The trail will probably take place in about six months. The defense attorney may move to have the trail moved to Western Mass where there wasn't as much emotional impact," Dershowitz said.

CBS 3 Springfield reached out to Springfield City Hall as well as federal sources, all saying it is too early to know where that trial will take place.
