Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been found guilty of plotting to use a weapon of mass destruction.

The man accused of bombing the Boston marathon in 2013 has been found guilty of all 30 charges that he faced, many of which carry the death penalty. The jury in Massachusetts will now decide what sentence 21-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will receive. Three people were killed and more than 260 injured when the bombs exploded at the finish line in April 2013. The guilty conviction was widely expected. In the next phase of the trial, Tsarnaev’s legal team will push for him to be given a life-in-prison sentence instead of death. Massachusetts abolished the death sentence in 1984 and has not executed anyone since 1947. But Tsarnaev was convicted of federal, not state crimes. A police officer was killed in the days following the attack as Tsarnaev and his brother, who also died, attempted to flee. The governor of Massachusetts welcomed the verdict, and Boston Mayor Martin Walsh said: “I hope today’s verdict provides a small amount of closure.” The family of officer Sean Collier, who was killed days after the attack, said: “While today’s verdict can never bring Sean back, we are thankful that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will be held accountable for the evil that he brought to so many families.”
