One woman, Mildred Valverde, who is on crutches since the attack, said she doesn’t want him to get the death penalty.
“I’d rather see him suffer, death is too quick,” she said. “Just to be in the same room with him was bothersome.”
In the courtroom, there were around 30 victims with their families. When Dzhokhar walked in wearing his orange jumpsuit, he appeared at ease. He even looked back at his family, smiled and blew a kiss.
“It depends on the minute; it depends on the day. I have mixed emotions,” victim Karen Brassard said. “I get angry, but I also think he’s just a kid.”
