"IT WAS HIM" writes The Boston Globe on the front page of its Thursday edition, alongside a courtroom sketch depicting Dzhokhar Tsarnaev entering the courtroom on the first day of testimony in the Boston Marathon bombing trial.
The Boston daily attributes the quote to a lawyer for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev: Standing in federal court Wednesday, the lawyer acknowledged that “It was him,” Tsarnaev, who planted a bomb that killed three people at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013 — and it was Tsarnaev who, along with his brother Tamerlan, went on a spree that ended in bloodshed in Watertown. The defense is hoping to avoid the death penalty for Tsarnaev, arguing that he was pulled into the plot by his older brother.
The long-awaited trial could last four months.
