Boston Marathon Bombings
The process is designed to weed out jurors who have strong feelings for or against the death penalty
The defense says too many prospective juror’s believe Tsarnaev is guilty.
Jury selection has resumed in the federal death penalty trial of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
The focus of the Boston Marathon bombing trial figures to be as much on what punishment Dzhokhar Tsarnaev could face as on his responsibility for the attack.
As the second phase of jury selection began Thursday, the judge and attorneys heard from a man who said he believes Tsarnaev is guilty, another who said he could never impose the death penalty and a third whose wife treated bombing victims.
A lawyer for Khairullozhon Matanov filed a joint motion with federal prosecutors on Monday asking the court to schedule the hearing.
The judge, Tsarnaev’s attorneys and prosecutors will begin questioning prospective jurors in the case Thursday.
One of the survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing is making huge strides in her recovery and getting ready to testify against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
Former Boston Police Commissioner and current WBZ Security Ananlyst Ed Davis said the France manhunts have striking similarities to the Boston Marathon bombing aftermath.
Choosing a jury in the closely watched terror case will not be a quick or simple process.
