Jury reach verdict in death sentence trial of Boston bomber

The jury reached a decision Friday in the penalty phase of the death penalty trial after 14 hours of deliberations. Tsarnaev was convicted last month of 17 charges punishable by death.

The jury deliberating the fate of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has reached a verdict.

The jury – seven women and five men – reached their a decision Friday after 14 hours of deliberations.

Tsarnaev was convicted last month of all 30 federal charges against him, 17 of which carried the possibility of the death penalty.

It has been down to the jury to decide whether or not to enact capital punishment.

Tsarnaev’s defense lawyers have said he deserved life in prison instead.

Families of bombing victims and emergency service personnel who helped deal with the aftermath of the terror attack packed the courtroom to hear the verdict.

When Tsarnaev entered he was said to appear emotionless – even relaxed – much like at every other phase of the trial.

The 2013 bombing killed three people and injured more than 260 others.
