An undated photo of Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is displayed on a computer screenBoston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will return to court for the start of his sentencing trial Tuesday when prosecutors will demand that the American jury condemn the 21-year-old to death. The sentencing trial opens one day after more than 27,000 people took part in this year's marathon in Boston, which is still reeling from the memory of the attacks, the deadliest on US soil since 9/11. It also comes as a growing number of survivors oppose the death penalty for Tsarnaev, a then teenage student, who with his elder brother Tamerlan killed three people and wounded 264 others in the bombings. The second stage of the trial, which is expected to last up to four weeks at the federal court in the northeastern US city, will see both prosecutors and defense attorneys call witnesses.
