Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was convicted on all charges Wednesday in the Boston Marathon bombing by a federal jury that now must decide whether the 21-year-old former college student should be executed. Tsarnaev folded his arms, fidgeted and looked down at the defense table as he listened to one guilty verdict after another on all 30 counts against him, including conspiracy and deadly use of a weapon of mass destruction. Seventeen of those counts are punishable by death. The trial phase to determine the actual punishment begins Monday.

President Obama first heads off for a stop in Jamaica on Tuesday, before heading to Panama. And questions surrounding last year’s hack of the White House by Russians, still more questions than answers

A North Charleston, South Carolina police officer who shot and killed a driver he had stopped last weekend for a broken tail light will be charged with murder after police received a video of the incident. The officer was identified as Patrolman 1st Class Michael Thomas Slager. North Charleston mayor Keith Summey, speaking at a news conference Monday, reminded people one officer who made a bad decision should not be a reflection of the entire force: Out of 343 police officers, this is a bad decision by one, he said.

Aaron keeping an eye on things in Boston – including the Aaron Hernandez murder trial and juror deliberations in that case as well.
