Supreme Court Puts Boston Marathon Bomber Back on Death Row

The Supreme Court on Friday reinstated Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s death sentence. The High Court’s conservative majority reversed a federal appeals court that flagged alleged errors in jury selection and sentencing at Tsarnaev’s 2015 trial. President Joe Biden’s Justice Department imposed a moratorium on federal executions in 2021, so Tsarnaev will not be put to death in the near term. But Friday’s result means a future administration could oversee his execution.
