"U.S. Seeking Death Penalty in Marathon Bombing"

From The New York Times:

Prosecutors explained their decision in an eight-page document filed in federal court in Boston.

. . .

Massachusetts abolished the death penalty at the state level in 1984 and has not executed a prisoner since 1947. Since the federal government reinstated its death penalty in 1988, it has executed just three people, including [Timothy] McVeigh, the Oklahoma City bomber.
