Dzjokhar Tsarnajev (21) has been found guilty of the terrorist attack on the Boston Marathon in 2013.
In a federal court in Boston on Wednesday, he was found guilty on all charges that involved use of weapons of mass destruction during the bombings.
The 21-year-old is in all indicted on 30 counts. He may face the death penalty for 17 of them, and he was found guilty on all of these.
The jury, consisting of seven women and five men, voted over the charges in around 12 hours before they were ready with the verdict on Wednesday. It is not known when the sentencing is ready.
Three people were killed and 264 wounded in the bomb attacks on April 15 almost two years ago.
Tsarnajevs defense lawyers have argued that the then 19 year old man was manipulated by its far more radical brother Tamerlan Tsarnajev to participate in the attack. His brother was killed when the brothers fled from the police after the attack.
Tsarnajev has declared himself not guilty on all counts.
