Death Penalty Sought For Boston Bomber

Federal authorities have decided to pursue the death penalty for Dzhokar Tsarnaev, the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing last April.  His older brother Tamerlan was killed in a gunfight with police as they tried to leave the area.  Tsarnaev faces a total of 30 federal charges, 17 of which could bring the death penalty, and state charges in the death of an MIT police officer.
