The Supreme Court may decide whether the Boston Marathon bomber can get the death penalty.

It agreed to hear the case, which looks at the bomber's sentence for death penalty-eligible crimes.

President Biden has previously said he wants to get rid of the death penalty at the federal level, but his administration, so far, hasn't indicated whether it will drop the appeal.
