Mass. man accused of filing fake marathon claim

BOSTON (AP) -- A Boston man is scheduled to be arraigned on charges that he made a fake claim of nearly $2.2 million to the main compensation fund for Boston Marathon bombing victims.
Twenty-two-year-old Branden Mattier  is to appear in Boston Municipal Court on charges of attempted larceny and identity theft.  
Attorney General Martha Coakley said Mattier claimed to The One Fund that his long-dead aunt had lost both legs in the April 15 attacks that killed three people and injured more than 260. She said Mattier's aunt
died more than 10 years ago.            
Coakley said Mattier was arrested Tuesday when he accepted a fake check for $2.195 million from an undercover state trooper.
Coakley said The One Fund reported the suspicious claim to her office.            
It is not known who is representing Mattier.
