Marathon bombing suspect on Rolling Stone cover

BOSTON (AP) - A Rolling Stone cover story on Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is generating controversy online.
    
The magazine's cover is a photo in which Tsarnaev looks more like one of the rock stars that usually grace it than a suspect in a high-profile bombing. A preview on the magazine's website says the story by contributing editor Janet Reitman traces how "a bright kid with a charming future became a monster."
    
Some Twitter users call the decision to use the photo disgraceful and are calling for a boycott of the magazine.
    
An email seeking comment was sent to Rolling Stone.
    
Tsarnaev has pleaded not guilty in the April 15 bombings at the marathon finish line that killed three and wounded more than 260.
