    Jurors convicted Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on Wednesday on all 30 charges he faced in the Boston Marathon bombings trial. Seventeen of those charges are punishable by death.

    Tsarnaev was found responsible for the deaths of three people who died in the bombings and the killing of a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer gunned down days later.

    In addition to the people killed, more than 260 others were injured when twin pressure-cooker bombs exploded near the marathon's finish line on April 15, 2013.

    The penalty phase of the trial is set to begin next week. Jurors will decide if Tsarnaev should spend the rest of his life in prison, or get the death penalty.
