Boston Marathon Bomber Sentenced to Death

More than two years after the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, there is finally closure. One of the bombers, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been sentenced to death for his role, per ABC News. The other person involved, older brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in a shootout with police shortly after the 2013 Boston Marathon.

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 Tsarnaev and his older brother, Tamerlan, detonated twin explosive devices near the finish line of the marathon. Three days later, the brothers murdered MIT police officer Sean Collier.
