BOSTON -- Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was sentenced to death by injection Friday for his role in the killing of four people and wounding of hundreds more in the 2013 Boston Marathon.
The decision, in the penalty phase of the trial, was reached by a jury of seven men and seven women after it deliberated three days. Tsarnaev received the death penalty on six of 17 counts.
The 21-year-old Tsarnaev barely reacted as the verdict was read, looking straight according, to accounts by reporters posted on Twitter.ahead. He cracked his knuckles twice before the reading of the verdict, and ran his hands through his hair shortly after the verdict came.
Appeals are expected to be made and it could take somewhere between four, or possibly as much longer, for the death penalty to be carried out, according to reports.
