home. >> but first this afternoon, sentenced to death for the boston marathon bombing. let's get right to wendy at the live desk. >> that's right. the jury has delivered its decision in the penalty phase of the boston marathon bombing. the short time ago the jury decided that dzhokhar tsarnaev should die for his role in the worst terror attack on american soil since 9/11. that same jury convicted him last month of 30 charges relating to that bombing. that killed three people and injured more than 240 others. jurors could have sentenced the convicted bomber to life in prison but rejected that option. the attorney general just released the statement saying "we know all too well that no verdict can heal the souls of those who lost loved ones nor the minds and bodies of those who suffered life changing injuries from this cowardly attack. but the ultimate penalty is a fitting punishment for this horrific crime and we hope that completion of this prosecution will bring some measure of

closure to the victims and their families." tsarnaev will be put to death by lethal injection and a judge will impose that sentence and at that time the bombing victims will be able to con front him. he will also be able to have the option of addressing the court and, of course there will be a lengthy appeals process before he would be receiving the death penalty if they get to that. at the live desk back you to. >> now to the mystery in a mansion behind the national cathedral. >> we expect a news conference any moment on the investigation. all day our reporters have been hunting down new information. >> first at 4:00 we know more about the family living in that burned up home and big clue found in maryland. darcy spencer starts our coverage. darcy? >> pat, yeah, we're standing by for that live press conference scheduled to get under way any minute with the chief of police mayor and other city leaders. no arrest will be announced but
