people. more than 240 were injured. from the beginning, sar nez's defense team has said its goal is to keep him from being put to death. they called just four witnesses in his defense pinning the blame on his older brother, tamerlan, as the mastermind. establishing that dzhokhar's fingerprints were forpt on some bomb component and that he was not present when the bomb components were purchased. to the septembtep extent they ch tamerlan was the leader, that leads into their defense to establish that dzhokhar was radicalized by tamerlan and least culpable. >> reporter: defense laying the ground work for the next sfphas if it gets that far. if the jury convicts sar nez on a any of the 17 charge, it will launch a second trial. both sides will be able to call witnesses and argue to the jurors whether joe sar tsarnaev
