Breaking News Dzhokhar faces execution: Boston bomber stands emotionless as he is found guilty of ALL 30 charges

Verdict: Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been found guilty of killing four people and injuring more than 260
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev today learned he could face the death penalty after jurors in the Boston bombing trial found him guilty of all counts.
The 21-year-old stood emotionless with his arms folded and his head bowed as the verdict, which was reached after nearly 12 hours of deliberations, was read out in U.S. District Court in Boston on Wednesday.
The charges, which are listed in detail below, included using a weapon of mass-destruction to kill three young people at the Boston marathon in April 2013.
Seventeen of the 30 charges had carried the death penalty. The same jury will now decide whether to sentence Tsarnaev to death or give him life in prison without possibility of parole.
The court will likely meet early next week to resume the penalty phase, the court heard on Wednesday.
Families of the victims were also present to hear the verdict but there was no celebration after each 'guilty' was read.

Among the victims' relatives, Denise Richard, the mother of an eight-year-old boy who died in the bombings, was seen wiping away tears as her son's killer left the courtroom. Her husband, Bill, then embraced one of the prosecutors, according to reports.
Also in court was Carlos Arredondo, who became known as 'the man in the cowboy hat' after rushing to the side of Jeff Bauman, who lost both of his legs in the blast.
After the verdict, Bauman released a statement.
