Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev sentenced to death

BOSTON ( — Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been sentenced to death today by a jury in a Boston federal courthouse.

Tsarnaev was convicted by the same jury of seven women and five men last month of all 30 counts related to the deadly April 15, 2013 bombing. Three people were killed, including an 8-year-old boy, and another 260 were injured when twin blasts ripped through crowds near the finish line of the marathon. The jury today found death the penalty was “appropriate” for six of the 17 death penalty eligible counts.

Tsarnaev’s older brother and co-conspirator, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was killed in a shootout with police four days after the explosions, hours before Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was captured in a dry-docket boat.
