Prosecutors seek
death penalty for
Boston bomber

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev
faces death for his
involvement in the
Marathon terrorism
BOSTON (AP) - Federal pros-
ecutors Thursday announced
they will seek the death penalty
against 20-year-old Dzhokhar
Tsarnaev in the Boston Mara-
thon bombing, accusing him of
betraying his adopted country by
ruthlessly carrying outa terrorist
attack calculated to cause maxi-
mum carnage.
U.S. Attorney General Eric
Holder's decision to press for
Tsarnaev's execution was widely
expected. The twin blasts last
April killed three people and
wounded more than 260, and
over half the 30 federal charges
against Tsarnaev - including
using a weapon of mass destruc-
tion to kill - carry a possible
death sentence.
"The nature of the conduct
at issue and the resultant harm
compel this decision," Holder
said in a statement of just two
terse and dispassionate sentenc-
es that instantly raised the stakes
in one of the most wrenching
criminal cases Boston has ever
seen.
Tsarnaev has pleaded not
guilty. No trial date has been set.
In a notice of intent filed in
court, federal prosecutors in
Boston listed factors they con-
tend justify a sentence of death
against Tsarnaev, who moved
to the U.S. from Russia about a
decade ago.
"Dzhokhar Tsarnaev received
asylum from the United States;
obtained citizenship and enjoyed
the freedoms of a United States
citizen; and then betrayed his
allegiance to the United States
by killing and raiming ,people
in the United States," read the
notice tFl6'bi"tS. Attorne&Y iar-
men Ortiz.
Prosecutors also cited Tsar-
naev's "lack of remorse" and
allegations that he killed an MIT
police officer as well as an 8-year-

old boy, a "particularly vulner-
able" victim because of his age.
They also said Tsarnaev commit-
ted the killings after "substantial
planning and premeditation."
In addition, they cited his
alleged decision to target the
Boston Marathon, "an iconic
event that draws large crowds of
men, women and children to its
final stretch, making it especially
susceptible to the act and effects
of terrorism."
Tsarnaev's lawyers had no
immediate comment.
In an interview with ABC,
Tsarnaev's mother, Zubeidat,
who lives in Russia, said: "How
can I feel about this? I feel noth-
ing. I can tell you one thing, that
Ilove my son. I will always feel
proud of him. And t keep loving
him."
Prosecutors allege Tsarnaev,
then 19, and his 26-year-old
brother, ethnic Chechens from
Russia, built and planted two
pressure-cooker bombs near the
finish line of the race to retaliate
against the U.S. for its military
actions in Muslim countries.
The older brother, Tamer-
Ian Tsarnaev, died in a shootout
with police during a getaway
attempt days after the bombing.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was wound-
ed but escaped and was later cap-
tured hiding in a boat parked in a
yard in a Boston suburb.
Authorities said he scrawled
inside the boat such things as
"The US Government is killing
our innocent civilians" and "We
Muslims are one body, you hurt
one you hurt us all."
Killed in the bombings were:
Martin Richard, 8, of Boston;
Krystle Campbell, 29, of Med-
ford; and Lu Lingzi, 23, a Bos-
ton University graduate student
from China. At least 16 others lost
limbs. Tsarnaev is also charged
in the slaying of the MIT officer
and the garjacking of a motor-
ist during the brothers' getaway
attempt.
Campbell's grandmother, Lil-
lian Campbell, said she isn't sure
she supports the death penalty
but fears Tsarnaev will "end up
living like a king" in prison.

talks with reporters after a GOP strategy session, Tuesday, Jan. 28 at Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington.
House Republicans. discuss outline of
immigration policies during a retreat

GOP divided over
future immigration
plans in upcoming
election year
CAMBRIDGE, Md. (AP) -
House Republicans wrestled
with the outlines of immigra-
tion legislation Thursday night,
sharply divided over the conten-
tious issue itself and the politi-
cal wisdom of acting on it in an
election year.
At a two-day retreat on the
frozen banks of the Choptank
River on Maryland's Eastern
Shore, GOP leaders circulated
an outline that would guide the
drafting of any House Republi-
can legislation on the subject -
a document that Speaker John
Boehner told the rank and file
was as far as the party was will-
ing to go.
It includes a proposed path-
way to legal status for millions
of adults who live in the U.S.
unlawfully - after they payback
taxes and fines - but no special
route to citizenship for them.
Many younger Americans
brought to the country illegally

by their parents would be eligi-
ble for citizenship.
"For those who meet cer-
tain eligibility standards, and
serve honorably in our military
or attain a college degrees, we
will do just that," the statement
said.
The principles also include
steps to increase security at
the nation's borders and work-
places, declaring those a pre-
requisite for any of the other
changes.
Conservatives reacted nega-
tively in advance.
"Intense debate on immigra-
tion inside right now," Rep. Steve
King tweeted as the rank and file
debated the issue behind closed
doors. "3-4 to 1 don't trust the
president and demand he secure
border first." The Iowa Republi-
can is an ardent foe of any chang-
es in legal status for those in the
country unlawfully
Underscoring the complex
political situation, some Demo-
crats reacted hopefully to the
principles, even though the pro-
posal for legal status falls short
of the full citizenship that was
included in a bipartisan measure
that cleared the Senate last year
with the support of President

Barack Obama.
"We have gone from the
Republicans saying 'self-depor-
tation' and 'veto the DREAM
Act,' to saying we need bipar-
tisan solutions," said Rep. Luis
Gutierrez, D-Ill., who has long
advocated an overhaul of exist-
ing laws.
Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.,
who was involved in drafting
the bill that passed the Senate,
added, "While these standards
are certainly not everything we
would agree with, they leave a
real possibility that Democrats
and Republicans, in both the
House and Senate, can in some
way come together and pass
immigration reform that both
sides can accept. "
The entire subject remains
intensely controversial, particu-
larly among conservatives in
both houses.
Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., who
heads the Republican Study Con-
ference, a group of conservative
lawmakers, repeatedly declined
to say on Thursday whether there
are any circumstances under
which he wouldbe able to support
legislation that bestowed legal
status on adults currently living
in the country illegally.

Another Republican, Rep.
Jason Smith of Missouri, told
reporters that his constituents
"definitely have big concerns
about legalization."
The drive to overhaul immi-
gration laws flagged after the
Senate acted, as House conserva-
tives dug in. The House Judiciary
Committee has approved four
bills, but none has reached the
House floor as conservatives have
expressed concern about being
drawn into an eventual compro-
mise with the White House.
One of thosebills wouldtough-
en enforcement of immigration
laws, including a provision that
would permit local police offi-
cers to enforce them as part of
an attempt to raise the number
of deportations. It also would
encourage immigrants in the
United States illegally to depart
voluntarily, an echo of Mitt Rom-
ney's call for "self-deportation" in
the 2012 presidential race.
Other measures, would cre-
ate a new system for requiring
employees to verify the legal sta-
tus of their workers, establish a
new temporary program for farm
workers and expand the number
of visas for employees in technol-
ogy industries.

turned in a second trial that
ended in an acquittal in 2011,
and Knox was released from
prison after four years behind
bars, returning to the United
States. But Italy's highest court
ordered a third trial.
The Florence court increased
Knox's sentence from the origi-
nal 26 years and handed Solle-
cito 25 years.
Kercher, 21, was found dead
Nov. 2, 2007, in a pool of blood
in the bedroom of the apart-
ment she and Knox shared in the
central Italian city of Perugia,
where both were studying. Her
throat had been slit and she had
been sexually assaulted.
Knox and Sollecito denied
any involvement in the killing,
insisting they were at Sollecito's
apartment that night, smoking
marijuana, watching a movie
and making love.
Prosecutors originally argued
that Kercher was killed in a
drug-fueled sex game gone awry
- an accusation that gave the
case a lurid cast that fascinated
the European tabloids and led to
headlines about "Foxy Knoxy"
and her sex life.
But at the third trial, prosecu-
tors argued instead that the vio-
lence stemmed from arguments
between roommates Knox and
Kercher about cleanliness and
was triggered by a toilet left
unflushed by the third defen-
dant in the case, Rudy Guede.
Guede, who is from the Ivory
Coast, was convicted in a sepa-
rate trial and is serving a 16-year
sentence for the murder.
Legal experts have said it is
unlikely that Italy will request
Knox's extradition before the
verdict is final.
