KISSIMMEE, Fla. —

Authorities have arrested a friend of the Chechen man who was shot to death in his Orlando apartment during questioning by the FBI about a Boston Marathon bombing suspect.

Ashurmamad Miraliev was booked into the Osceola County Jail on Friday. He is charged with tampering with a witness or informant.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Twis Lizasuain says Miraliev's arrest is unrelated to the Boston bombing probe or the FBI.

The 20-year-old Miraliev was living in the same Orlando apartment where his friend, Ibragim Todashev (IH'-bruh-heem TOH'-duh-shehv), was fatally shot last May.

Todashev was killed while FBI agents and others questioned him about his friendship with suspected Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev (TAM'-ehr-luhn tsahr-NEYE'-ehv). Officials originally said the Chechen man lunged at an agent with a knife. They later said it was no longer clear what happened.
