Cause of Death

Tsarnaev and his older brother, Tamerlan, detonated two bombs at the marathon’s finish line in 2013, killing three people and injuring 260 more.

Tamerlan died in a shootout with police as the two attempted to escape justice, but Dzhokhar was captured.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, one of the two Boston Marathon bombers, is no longer on death row.

A federal appeals court overturned Tsarnaev’s death sentence Friday, ruling that two of the 12 jurors who sentenced him to death in 2015 were unfairly biased.

Dzhokhar admitted to the bombing, but his lawyers argued at the trial that he’d been coerced by his older brother. The jury did not see it that way and sentenced him to death.

Friday, the 1st Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals tossed that ruling and ordered a new trial to redetermine Tsarnaev’s sentence.

The court ruled that two jurors were biased against Tsarnaev before the sentencing trial started, citing social media posts introduced by Tsarnaev’s lawyers.

“But make no mistake,” the majority opinion read. “Dzhokhar will spend his remaining days locked up in prison, with the only matter remaining being whether he will die by execution.”

Tsarnaev is currently incarcerated at a federal supermax prison in Florence, Colo.

A federal appeals court

A federal appeals court ruled on Friday to vacate the death sentence of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who along with his brother planted homemade bombs near the finish of the 2013 Boston Marathon, killing three spectators.

The US Court of Appeals for the First Circuit ruled to vacate his death sentence on five counts, saying the judge erred several times.
Convictions on three of the counts Tsarnaev was convicted on have been overturned, the three-judge panel said.
But Tsarnaev is not getting out of federal prison.

“And just to be crystal clear: Because we are affirming the convictions (excluding the three § 924(c) convictions) and the many life sentences imposed on those remaining counts (which Dzhokhar has not challenged), Dzhokhar will remain confined to prison for the rest of his life, with the only question remaining being whether the government will end his life by executing him,” the opinion, authored by Circuit Court Judge Ojetta Rogeriee Thompson, says.
The court ruled Tsarnaev should be given a new penalty phase trial.
Tsarnaev’s attorneys had argued he didn’t get a fair trial because Boston was the scene of the mayhem. Attorney Daniel Habib argued in December that the jury was made up of people directly affected by the terror plot who already had made up their mind about Tsarnaev.
Tsarnaev is being held in federal prison in Colorado. He was convicted in 2015, including for the deaths of Krystle Campbell, Martin Richard, Lingzi Lu at the marathon and police officer Sean Collier.
Tsarnaev was 19 years old when he and his brother, Tamerlan, who was 26 years old at the time, went to Boston’s Boylston Street shortly before 3 p.m. on April 15, 2013, to carry out their plot.
Surveillance video showed the brothers carrying the pressure cooker bombs in backpacks and moving through the crowd near the marathon finish line in what federal prosecutors called a coordinated attack.
