Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the Boston Marathon bomber, has had his death sentence overturned by an appeal court.
Tsarnaev and his older brother set off a pair of homemade pressure-cooker bombs near the finish line of the race in 2013. Three people died and more than 260 were injured.
Days later they hijacked a car and shot dead a police officer. Tsarnaev’s brother died that night after a gunfight with police.
In 2015 Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was convicted and a jury decided he deserved execution.
Tsarnaev’s lawyers argued the case should not have been tried in Boston, where potential jurors were exposed to blanket media coverage about the attacks.
