share on:

The suspect of the 2013 Boston Marathon, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been sentenced to death after being judged guilty.

A 12-man jury comprising of 7 men and 5 women found Tsarnaev guilty of 30 charges, 17 of which carried the death penalty.

Tsarnaev, 21, was convicted for his part in detonating two bombs at the marathon, killing three people and injuring more than 260 others.

The jury determined that Tsarnaev would be killed by lethal injection, even though his defense had pleaded for life imprisonment.

The defense also tried to place most of the blame on Dzhokhar’s elder brother, Tamerlan, but the jury didn’t buy it.
