U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has authorized federal prosecutors to seek the death penalty for accused Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
The two pressure cooker bombs Tsarnaev and his brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev allegedly planted near the Boston Marathon finish line on April 15 killed three people and wounded more than 260. Some of the survivors lost limbs. Because the attack was so devastating, many expected Holder to push for the most extreme penalty.
