Boston Marathon bombing jury has life or death choice to make

Another law professor monitoring the case, Daniel Medwed from Northeastern University in Boston, said the first part of the trial was about what Tsarnaev did, the second part is about who he is, his back story.
“What is he about, is there anything worth saving here? It’s a different focus,” Medwed explained.
Clarke is expected to highlight what are considered mitigating factors under the federal death penalty law and could argue that Tsarnaev acted under duress, that his role was minor and that he was mentally or emotionally disturbed.
