BOSTON - Jurors in the trial of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev have finished their first full day of deliberations without reaching a verdict.

The federal jury must decide whether the 21-year-old Tsarnaev should be sentenced to death or life in prison for his role in the deadly 2013 attack.

Jurors began deliberating late Wednesday and continued all day Thursday.

Three people were killed and more than 260 were injured when two pressure cooker bombs exploded near the finish line on April 15, 2013. A Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer was killed days later during a citywide manhunt.

Tsarnaev was convicted last month of all 30 federal charges against him, including 17 that carry the possibility of the death penalty.

The jury will resume deliberations Friday.
