A McVeigh Juror's Message To Tsarnaev Jurors

Download Audio

Jurors in the Boston Marathon bombing trial are deliberating once again. Following closing arguments Wednesday, they began working on their final decision in the case: whether convicted bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev should be put to death.

It's a decision few people ever have to make. The last time someone was sentenced to death in a terrorism case in this country was 1997, in the trial of convicted Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh.

Mike Leeper was a juror the Mcveigh trial. He recently discussed the experience on Radio Boston, and a version aired on Morning Edition. Listen to the Radio Boston interview below, or the Morning Edition version above.

This segment aired on May 14, 2015.
