Dzhokhar and his older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, set off two explosives near the finish line of the Boston Marathon in 2013, killing three people and injuring more than 260 others. Prosecutors say the brothers also killed an MIT police officer, and Tamerlan died while fleeing police before officers arrested his brother. (Video via The Boston Globe, ABC)
