BOSTON - It's official.  Dzhokar Tsarnaev, the Boston Bomber, is going to die. Judge George O'Toole made it formal, and he said some other strong stuff too.

"What will be remembered is you murdered and maimed innocent people," the judge told him.

Dzhokar's brother Tamerlan was killed in a shootout with police after the terror attack, which killed three people and injured 260 others in April 2013.

Tsarnaev admitted to the bombing and in court, he broke his silence, and said he's sorry.

"I ask Allah to have mercy on me, my brother and my family." --- "I would like to now apologize to the victims and the survivors," he said in court.

One survivor from the bombing didn't feel as merciful toward Tsarnaev.

"I regret having ever wanting to hear him speak, because what he said showed no remorse, no regret, and no empathy for what he's done to our lives," said bombing survivor, Lynn Julian.

While some are still struggling to heal, others find peace and forgiveness in Tsarnaev's apology.

Henry Borgard, another bombing survivor said, "for me to hear him say that he's sorry, that is enough for me and I hope because I still do have faith in humanity including in him, I hope that his words were genuine."

No words can explain the pain to the families of victims and survivors. Boston, stay strong.
