According to CNN, a jury of seven women and five men delivered their verdict today after deliberating for three days and sentenced the Boston Marathon bomber to death for his role in the 2013 attack, ending the biggest federal terrorism trial in the United States since the 9/11 attacks nearly 14 years ago.
The 21-year-old Russian immigrant never spoke publicly about the bombings and did not testify during the two-month trial.
CNN Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin said a years-long appeal process is expected following the verdict, but “the overwhelming likelihood is that he will die.”
The jury’s verdict is the first time since the 9/11 attach that federal prosecutors have won the death penalty in a terrorism case. Tsarnaev will likely be sent to the federal death row in Terre Haute, Indiana, according to CNN.
