BOSTON (AP) - An FBI agent says a man who was a friend of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects sent more than $71,000 to people in six countries, often using false names, from 2010 to 2013.

The agent says the money transfers by the man, Khairullozhon Matanov, stopped during the time in 2012 when one of the bombing suspects went to Russia.

The agent's testimony came during a hearing Wednesday where prosecutors plan to ask a judge to keep Matanov locked up while he awaits trial.

Matanov is accused of deleting computer files and lying to investigators. A prosecutor says the use of false names in money transfers shows a pattern of deceit.

Authorities say he knew the brothers who they say planted bombs at the marathon last year, killing three people and wounding hundreds.
