(NBC NEWS) Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been convicted for his role in the April 15, 2013 bombings of the Boston Marathon, ending the first phase of a terror trial that will now continue with a penalty phase to determine whether he will be executed.
A jury of seven women and five men who had deliberated for two days delivered guilty verdicts in at least one of the 30 criminal counts against Tsarnaev, who was 19 when twin blasts rocked the race's finish line. Three people died and 260 were injured in the worst terror attacks on American soil since 9/11.
