A U.S. federal judge will formally sentence Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to death at a court hearing Wednesday when the 21-year-old former student will be offered the chance to speak.Judge George O'Toole will then officially hand down the sentence, reached unanimously by the 12-person jury.The April 15, 2013 double bombings at the Boston Marathon were one of the worst assaults on American soil since the September 11, 2001 attacks.Carried out by Tsarnaev and his older brother Tamerlan, the bombs killed three people and wounded 264 others, including 17 who lost limbs, near the finish line at the northeastern city's popular marathon.It took the jury more than 14 hours to choose death rather than life imprisonment for Tsarnaev on six counts.
