BREAKING NEWS: Reports now reveal that the jury in the Boston Marathon bombing trial of Muslim terrorist Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has reached a verdict after two days of deliberations. The 21-year-old bomber has now been convicted of his acts of terror, murder, and destruction. He could get the death penalty for his crimes.

As Breitbart reported a few days ago:

After sixteen days of testimony, the jury for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s trial is ready to begin deliberations as the very life of the 21-year-old hangs in the balance.

Tsarnaev pleaded not guilty to the 2013 bombings that killed 3 and injured 260, several seriously. He was charged with 30 separate offenses, 17 of which carry the death penalty. Now the jury is ready to consider what they have heard.

Tsarnaev’s lawyers have claimed that it was his older brother, 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who did all the planning and pressured his younger brother into the act of terror. The lawyers claimed that without Temerlan, the younger man would never have committed such a heinous act.

Now the jury has returned its verdict.
