BOSTON, Mass. (ANM) — After 14 hours of deliberation, a jury of seven women and five men sentenced Dzhokar Tsarnaev to death by lethal injection for his role in the death of four and injuring hundreds of people in the Boston Bombing attack on April 15, 2013.

From a previous trial convicting him on 30 counts, Tasrnaev is guilty of killing four people including an eight-year-old boy and injuring over 200 people, 17 of which lost their limbs from homemade pressure cookers that were located in various places inside of backpacks.  His “reasoning” for enacting the attack on innocent people, “Stop killing our innocent people and we will stop,”.

At around 3:15 the court room was silent with Tsarnaev refusing to look up at the jury as judge began reading the penalty verdict  of 12 aggravating factors and 21 mitigating factors sealed Tsarnaev’s fate. Tsarnaev looked emotionless during his verdict hearing but did seem emotional as his family members took the stand to speak on his behalf.

This verdict ends an emotional trial that has gripped national and international attention since the beginning.  It is the first time since 9/11 prosecutors have won the death penalty against a terror suspect. For those who are still suffering under the pain Dzhokar and his brother caused on that fateful day it has created closure and brought justice to those harmed.
