Could Dzhokhar Tsarnaev avoid the death penalty?
Prosecutors and lawyers for the surviving Boston Marathon bombing suspect have begun very early discussions about a possible deal.
In it he would cooperate in exchange for avoiding the death penalty, legal sources said yesterday.
Also, just joining his legal team is prominent death penalty lawyer Judy Clarke who helped others avoid the death penalty in the past.
Clarke's clients include unabomber Ted Kaczynski, Susan Smith, who drowned her two children, and the Tucson, Arizona shooter, Jared Loughner.
