A courtroom sketch shows accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev during his trial at the federal courthouse in BostonBy Scott Malone BOSTON (Reuters) - Jurors in the Boston Marathon bombing trial heard poignant eyewitness testimony on Thursday about the final moments of the three people killed in the attacks, when twin bombs ripped through crowds at the race's finish line in 2013. A father of three recalled watching people trying in vain to revive 8-year-old Martin Richard, one Boston police officer remembered administering CPR to 29-year-old Krystle Campbell and a second officer said she left the body of 23-year-old Lingzi Lu only when ordered to by her captain, amid fears there could be a third bomb. Defendant Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 21, has admitted through his attorneys that he and his older brother carried out the April 15, 2013, bombing that killed three people and injured 264. He is also on trial for the fatal shooting of a police officer three days later.

Jodi Arias escapes death penalty after Arizona jury deadlocks

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 03/06/2015 - 03:41

Jodi Arias looks toward the jury entering the courtroom during the sentencing phase retrial in PhoenixBy David Schwartz PHOENIX (Reuters) - An Arizona jury failed to reach a verdict on Thursday in the sentencing retrial of Jodi Arias after a lone juror refused to back the death penalty, a development that spared the former waitress from execution for murdering her former boyfriend. It was the second time a jury has been unable to decide whether the 34-year-old Arias, convicted of murder in 2013, should be executed for the 2008 killing of Travis Alexander. "We are hung and additional time will not change this," the foreman of the jury of eight women and four men wrote in a note read by Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Sherry Stephens, who swiftly declared a mistrial, drawing sobs from Alexander's relatives. "The real justice will be in the afterlife, when Jodi burns in hell," Alexander's sister, Tanisha Sorenson, tearfully told reporters outside the court.
