boston bomber verdict found guilty

UPDATE: The final verdicts have come in and the jury has found Tsarnaev guilty on all 30 counts, 17 of which carry the possibility of the death penalty.

The Boston Marathon Bomber trial has reached a close, as Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been found guilty of plotting to use a weapon of mass destruction.

The Boston jury that decided he is guilty is now deciding whether he will spend his life in prison or face the death penalty.

The bombing attack left three people dead and over 260 people injured in the awful events that transpired in April 2013.

While his verdicts on other other counts are still being read, it only took jurors just over 12 hours divided over the span of two days.

Dzhokhar apparently kept his hands folded while the guilty verdicts were being handed down.

We'll keep you posted as more information comes in.

Boston Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Charged! Magistrate Judge Called To Hospital! Charges Could Carry Death Penalty!

A rep from the White House has just confirmed that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings, will face criminal charges in federal court, rather than be designated an enemy combatant.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said in the case against Dzhokhar, this is "absolutely the right way to go and the appropriate way to go."

Citing other terrorists who have been tried and convicted in federal court, he added:

“The system has repeatedly proven that it can successfully handle the threat that we continue to face.”

Dzhokhar was reportedly arraigned in his hospital bed earlier today and while some outlets are reporting his charges are being sealed, others have reported that he has been officially charged with with one count of using and conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction in the U.S. and one count of malicious destruction of property with an explosive device. The charges could carry the death penalty.

The wheels of justice are starting to turn. Here's hoping we'll have more answers soon.
