Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s death sentence is expected to be made official next month.

Formal sentencing for Tsarnaev has been set for June 24 in Boston’s Joseph Moakley Courthouse.

A federal jury sentenced Tsarnaev, 21, to death this month for his role in the April 2013 bombings, in which three people were killed and at least 264 were injured when two pressure-cooker bombs exploded near the Boston Marathon finish line.

The jury’s decision is legally binding, but it officially is a recommendation until a judge formally hands out the sentence.
