    Boston Marathon Bombing Jury Ends First Day of Deliberations Without Verdict

    Jurors to resume weighing the fate of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on Wednesday

    BOSTON—A federal jury deciding the fate of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in the Boston Marathon bombing trial went home after the first day of deliberations Tuesday without reaching a verdict.
    The panel of seven women and five men, who are sorting through 30 charges after 16 days of testimony, will resume their deliberations on Wednesday.
    Mr. Tsarnaev’s lawyers have admitted his culpability in the deadly April 2013 attack, as well as in the murder of a Massachusetts Institute of Technology campus police officer during the manhunt after the bombings.
    Still, legal experts said it is not surprising that jurors would take time to consider lengthy instructions from the judge and multiple charges related to terrorism, murder, conspiracy, and weapons. The jurors also heard days of graphic testimony that brought some to tears.
    “Jurors want to talk about the case,” said Michael Kendall, a former federal prosecutor who is now a partner at McDermott Will & Emery LLP in Boston. “This is an emotional event for the jurors, and they will need to share it with the people who understand their experience best.”
    If convicted, the same jury would decide if Mr. Tsarnaev is sentenced to death or life in prison without parole.
    Defense attorney Judy Clarke called Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s role “inexcusable” and said he was ready to be held responsible for his actions.Mr. Tsarnaev, 21 years old, has pleaded not guilty to all the charges. But his lawyers admitted at the trial’s start and closing that their client fully participated in the attack with his 26-year-old brother, Tamerlan.
    Still, she argued that Tamerlan was the ringleader, while Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, at a vulnerable point in his life, followed along. Tamerlan was killed during a confrontation with police days after the bombings.
    The defense likely was already trying to present potential mitigating factors that might keep the jury from voting for the death penalty if there is a conviction.
    On Tuesday, survivors, families and others affected by the bombings waited for a verdict at the courthouse. In the nearly two years since the attacks, they have formed a community of sorts, first around the tragedy and then around the fallout.
    “It’s been hard to watch for everybody,” said Carlos Arredondo, a 54-year-old Boston area man who was a race spectator that day and became well known for rescuing a young man who lost both legs in the first explosion.
    “We have the support we need, but you know, this whole thing has been upsetting,” he added.

    i have a legal question. this is a federal case so the death penalty applies but the crime and the trial took place in a state that doesn't have the death penalty. so if he's sentenced to death, how do they choose where to carry it out? or do they send him to a federal prison in a state that does have the death penalty?

    if I remember my poli science correctly -Federal trumps the state law , if it's being tired in a Federal court the Federal law applies not the state law and his death sentence would be carried out by the federal court not state of Mass court system -please someone correct me if I am wrong

    yeah, of course. my question isn't about how they're going to apply the death penalty but where they choose to execute him. i guess that's what would be behind their choice to send him to one federal prison vs. another?

    ^^That's what I understand. I think it'll be like Timothy McVeigh (OK City). He committed the crime in Oklahoma, but was sent to Federal prison in Indiana, where he was executed.

    Is he expected to get a death sentence? I thought he wasn't.

    I think the only federal death row is at the Indiana prison.
    I don't think the US should be in the death penalty business...but as it is, this motherfucker really deserves it. Don't give a shit about the older brother's influence, this guy was all in, and caused an unimaginably wide swath of pain and suffering.

    McVeigh was kept at the SuperMax in Colorado for most of his sentence, then transferred to Indiana to be executed.
