    DZHOKHAR TSARNAEV CONVICTED IN BOSTON MARATHON BOMBING

    BOSTON (AP) -- Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv) has been convicted in the 2013 bombing of the Boston Marathon.

    A federal jury found Tsarnaev guilty Wednesday in the 2013 terror attack that killed three people and wounded more than 260. He kept his hands folded in front of him and looked down at the defense table as the guilty verdicts were read.

    The jury will now decide whether the 21-year-old former college student should be sentenced to death or receive life in prison.

    Tsarnaev's conviction was widely expected, given his lawyer's startling admission during opening statements that he took part in the bombing. But the lawyer also argued that Tsarnaev's older brother, Tamerlan, masterminded the attack and enlisted his then-19-year-old brother to help.

    I heard they only reached a verdict on the first count. Now I'm confused.

      I'm not a fan of the death penalty, but there are cases such as this in which I think the death penalty is appropriate. The Timothy McVeigh case was another one.

        No, the first ten - which all carry the possibility of death. Perhaps more by now.

              I guess that shouldn't be surprising that the verdicts were so quick... I wonder how long they'll deliberate on the sentence once they get the case.

                  Oh good, someone society considers okay to kill so we can vicariously live out our murder fantasies!

                    Threads like this are never complete until someone fangirls for murderers.

                      Demonizing the people you disagree with much?

                        I'm not American but I'd say life. I used to be a fan of the death penalty but I went off it.

                          Yep, religion is good at murder.

                            Sheesh Sea, some would simply call this justice. Murder fantasies? Really?

                              There is no murder in your godless universe Tass, just opinion.
