Boston – Federal prosecutors are seeking the death penalty in the case of Boston Marathon bomb suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the announcement made Thursday ignited a range of emotions from victims and their families.
Lillian Campbell, the grandmother of 29-year-old Krystle Campbell who was killed in the attack, is quoted as stating of her uncertainty regarding the punishment, “I don’t know, because it’s not going to bring her back… I don’t even like to discuss it because it makes me so upset. She was my granddaughter and I miss her so much.”
Holding a different view, Marc Fucarile, of Stoneham, who suffered an amputation and other severe injuries in the bombing, is quoted as stating of prosecutors seeking the death penalty in the case, “It shows people that if you are going to terrorize our country, you are going to pay with your life.”
In a notice filed by U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz Tsarnaev is accused of betraying his adopted country in unremorsefully carrying out a planned terrorist attack. He has pleaded not guilty in the case. A trial date has yet to be set.
