In response to the sentencing to death of Dzhokar Tsarnaev, the US Attorney General said: "The ultimate penalty is a fitting punishment for this horrific crime."
Dzhokar Tsarnaev coldly and callously perpetrated a terrorist attack that injured hundreds of Americans and ultimately took the lives of three individuals: Krystle Marie Campbell, a 29-year-old native of Medford; Lingzi Lu, a 23-year-old Boston University graduate student from China; and Martin Richard, an 8-year-old boy from Dorchester who was watching the marathon with his family just a few feet from the second bomb.
Dzokhar Tsarnaev will be killed by lethal injection after being sentenced to the death penalty by a jury in Boston.
As ITV News Washington Correspondent Robert Moore reports, Tsarnaev's brother Tamerlan was killed by police in a shootout shortly after the deadly attack on the city's marathon in 2013.

An image allegedly showing the last words written by suspected Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, before he was captured, have been obtained by ABC News.
The writing was apparently found on the wall of the boat he was arrested in.
ABC have transcribed what they believe to be the inscription on the boat walls:
“The U.S. government is killing our innocent civilians, but most of you already know that… I can’t stand to see such [bullet hole] go unpunished,” said the note ABC News obtained from a law enforcement official.
“We Muslims are one body. You kill one of us, you hurt [bullet hole] us all.”
