Boston Marathon bomber sentenced: will he receive the death penalty?

A jury today convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on 30 of 30 charges, 17 of which carry the possibility of the death penalty. The sentencing phase will now begin. I have a preview of it for Sports Illustrated.

This is a story that I covered back in 2013 from Boston for SI and was one of the most difficult stories I've reported on. For many of the victims and their families I know they have waited for this day for a long time.
