A JUDGE HAS sent jurors home in the trial of admitted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev after their first day of deliberations.

Judge George O’Toole Junior dismissed the jury after a little more than seven hours of deliberations.

The judge said jurors sent him two notes containing questions shortly before the day’s end. He did not share the contents of the notes publicly but told the jurors he will answer their questions Wednesday morning.

Jurors are considering 30 charges against Tsarnaev stemming from the 2013 attack that killed three people and wounded more than 260.

If they convict him, they will then decide whether he should be sentenced to death or receive life in prison.
