Boston Bombing Jury To Exclude People Opposed To Death Penalty

Jury selection is underway for the accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who faces 30 charges including use of a weapon of mass destruction and bombing of a public place.

As explained by MSNBC’s Ron Mott, the federal court is looking for jurors who are not opposed to the death penalty.

The state of Massachusetts does not have the death penalty. However, because it is a federal case and not a state case, the defender could still end up with the death penalty.
