Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on Thursday was moved to a U.S. penitentiary in Florence, Colorado, home to the so-called “Supermax” unit that houses high-risk prisoners, a spokesman for the Bureau of Prisons said.
Tsarnaev, 21, was moved to the facility the day after a federal judge in Boston formally sentenced him to death by lethal injection for killing four people and injuring 264 in the April 15, 2013, bombing and its aftermath.
Bureau of Prisons spokesman Edmond Ross confirmed the move.
