LAST WORDS

Tsarnaev Apologizes, Sentenced to Death

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev asked God to forgive him and apologized to the victims and survivors of his terrorist attack on the 2013 Boston Marathon during his appearance in front of a federal court Wednesday.

“I would like to apologize to the victims and the survivor. I am sorry for the lives I have taken, for the suffering I have caused, and for the terrible damage I have done.

“I pray to Allah to bestow his mercy on those affected in the bombing and their families. I pray for your healing.”

With that, Tsarnaev sat down and Judge George A. O’Toole decided his fate.

“I sentence you to the penalty of death by execution.”
