Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the now 21-year-old who carried out the attack on the 2013 Boston Marathon, has been found guilty and convicted on all 30 charges he faced on Wednesday, April 8 — including conspiracy and deadly use of a weapon of mass destruction. The jury, who took almost 12 hours to reach a verdict, will now decide whether the former college student will face the death penalty.

While his verdict was being read, Tsarnaev kept his arms folded and looked down while he fidgeted with his hands, CNN reports

Tsarnaev, who was 19 at the time of the attack, carried out the crime with his 26-year-old brother Tamerlan. Tamerlan was killed by FBI agents following a 36-hour manhunt which resulted in his death and the capture of Dzhokhar.

The two brothers created pressure cooker bombs that exploded near the April 15, 2013 marathon’s finish line, killing three spectators and wounding more than 260 other people, some of whom showed up to hear the verdict read on Wednesday.
