Convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will return to court on Tuesday for the sentencing phase of his trial. US prosecutors will argue that he should be put to death for his role in the deadly attack in 2013.

Now, on the day before The Boston Marathon and days prior to sentencing for Tsarnaev, some extremely prominent people, as well as survivors who were deeply affected by the Boston Marathon bombings are asking the federal government not to pursue the death penalty.
