Tsarnaev could also face state charges in the slaying of a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer, who was shot in his cruiser Thursday night on the MIT campus in Cambridge.

News of the criminal charges pleased some of the people gathered at a makeshift memorial along the police barricades on Boylston Street, where the attack took place.

Amy McPate a Massachusetts native now living in Maine, said she usually opposes the death penalty, but thinks it should apply in this case.

“They were more than murderers. They’re terrorists. They terrorized the city,” she said. “The nation has been terrorized.”

Kaitlynn Cates of Everett, who suffered a leg injury in the bombing, said from her hospital room: “He has what’s coming to him.”
