BOSTON (AP) — A Rolling Stone cover story on Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv) is generating controversy.

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.

Two New England-based retailers announced Wednesday they will not carry the magazine in their stores: Woonsocket, R.I.-based pharmacy chain CVS, and a Rockland, Mass.-based convenience store chain, Tedeschi Food Shops.

An email seeking comment was sent to Rolling Stone.

Tsarnaev has pleaded not guilty in the April 15 bombings.
