Jury finds that bomber showed no remorse

BOSTON (AP) — Jurors who sentenced Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev have found that he showed no remorse.

The jury found that Tsarnaev committed 11 of 12 aggravating factors that prosecutors said supported a sentence of death.

Among the aggravating factors they say the government proved was that he targeted an iconic event that draws large crowds, which makes it especially susceptible to terrorism.

The only one they ruled the government hadn’t proved was that Tsarnaev made statements suggesting that others would be justified in committing additional acts of violence and terrorism against the U.S.

As for mitigating factors presented by the defense, only three of 12 jurors found that Tsarnaev would not have committed the crime but for his older brother, Tamerlan.
