Will The Boston Marathon Bomber Still Face The Death Sentence?

A federal appeals court in Boston has ordered that the case of the Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev be returned to a lower court. In a 2-1 vote, the three-judge panel concluded that claims of juror bias from Tsarnaev’s legal team had not been adequately probed. Depending on the investigation of the lower court, a new penalty phase could overturn Tsarnaev’s death sentence.

Retired FBI Special Agent Kyle Vowinkel recounts how he was able to use his experience with the Crisis Negotiation Unit and the Hostage Rescue Team to secure Tsarnaev’s peaceful surrender. Later, he reacts to the latest news surrounding Tsarnaev.
