A lawyer for Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv) is urging the jury to send him to prison for the rest of his life, saying, "There is no point in trying to hurt him as he hurt because it can't be done."
Attorney David Bruck gave opening statements Monday in the penalty phase of Tsarnaev's trial for the 2013 attacks. Jurors will decide whether Tsarnaev should spend the rest of his life in prison or should be sentenced to death.
Bruck says there's no punishment Tsarnaev can receive that would be equal to the suffering of the victims. He says, "There is no evening the scales."
Three people were killed and more than 260 others were injured in the twin bombings.
