Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev sentenced to death.

Tsarnaev reportedly did not react as the sentence was delivered.

After three days and 14 hours of deliberation, a US jury has sentenced Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to death for his involvement in the 2013 bombings at the Boston marathon.

The attacks killed three people and injured more than 260 others.

According to the ABC, the jury of 12 “agreed with prosecutors that Tsarnaev had deliberately killed his victims in a premeditated act of terrorism, rejecting defence claims that he had been under the influence of his radicalised older brother.”

The jury said it did not believe that locking Tsarnaev in prison would restrict his communication from the outside world.

It’s likely Tsarnaev’s lawyers will appeal the sentence.

More to come.
