Federal appeals court vacates Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s death sentence | Fox News

A federal appeals court has vacated the death sentence of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, based on the opinion that the Judge in the case did not vet the jury properly, with regard to possible bias stemming from pretrial publicity.

Tsarnaev was convicted and sentenced to death in 2015 for carrying out the April 15, 2013 attack at the marathon finish line with his older brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who died in a shootout with police after a manhunt.
