NEW: Boston Marathon Bomber Tsarnaev Sentenced to Death

Saturday, May 16, 2015

 

Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been sentenced to death by a Boston jury on Friday afternoon. This decision comes after 16 hours of deliberations over the last couple of days. 

Tsarnaev was found guilty on all of the 30 counts that he was charged with on Wednesday, April 8 in the Boston Marathon bombing trial.

The trial began on March 4. His defense lawyers admitted from beginning of the trial that he took part in the attack. The strategy was to save him from execution by claiming he was influenced by his radicalized older brother, Tamerlan.

Tsarnaev was accused of planning the bombing of the Boston Marathon with his older brother Tamerlan on April 15, 2013. Three people were killed and over 260 more were injured by the blasts set off from the brothers’ pressure cooker style bombs. 

Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed during the shootout when he was run over in the carjacked vehicle by his younger brother.
