ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The father of a Chechen man shot to death during questioning about a Boston Marathon bombing suspect is planning to meet with a federal prosecutor in Tampa a day after he met with an Orlando prosecutor.

An attorney for Ibragim Todashev’s father says they will meet with U.S. Attorney Lee Bentley on Wednesday to discuss what happened to his son.

On Tuesday, Todashev’s father met with State Attorney Jeff Ashton in Orlando, who is reviewing the case.

The 27-year-old Todashev was killed in May while FBI agents and police from Massachusetts and Florida questioned him at his Orlando apartment about his friendship with suspected Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev. Officials originally said the Chechen man lunged at an agent with a knife. They later said it was no longer clear what happened.
