Tsarnaev has been charged with using and conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction in the bombings, which killed three and injured 176. In a statement, the Justice Department says if convicted, Tsarnaev faces a range of sentences -- from the death penalty to life in prison or a term in prison for any number of years.

Tsarnaev, who was seriously injured in a firefight with police before his Friday arrest, was charged in his hospital bed Monday. His brother, 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was killed after a firefight with police early Friday.
