The trial will now move onto the penalty phase. While the schedule is undetermined, the judge expects a possible resumption early next week.
Charges against Tsarnaev included the use of weapons of mass destruction (including two pressure cookers and three pipe bombs), the use of a firearm, the bombing of a place of public use, conspiracy to destroy property, malicious destruction of property by means of explosives, carjacking, and aiding and abetting in all counts. The jury determined his actions caused the deaths of Krystle Marie Campbell, 29, Lingzi Lu, 23, Martin Richard, 8, and MIT Officer Sean Collier, 27.
