Your Say: Do you think federal prosecutors should seek the death penalty for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev?

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) - Federal prosecutors announced on Thursday that they will be seeking the death penalty for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Attorney General Eric Holder's decision to press for Tsarnaev's execution was widely expected. The twin blasts killed three people and wounded more than 260 others, and 17 of the 30 federal charges against him -- including using a weapon of mass destruction to kill -- carry the possibility of the death penalty.

This is an unusual decision for Massachusetts, a state that does not have the death penalty.

Tsarnaev has pleaded not guilty.
