The Colorado penitentiary is not the infamous “supermax” prison where many of America’s worst criminals, including several terrorists, are serving life sentences. The supermax, also known as ADX, is one of several other correctional facilities at the site in Florence.
Tsarnaev was formally sentenced to be executed for his role in the April 15, 2013 bombings on Wednesday.
