The penalty phase of the Boston Marathon bombing trial continues Monday with the defense taking its turn.

Prosecutors wrapped up their arguments last week.

Dzhokar Tsarnaev’s attorneys are trying to prevent the death penalty for the man convicted of the 2013 bombing.

Several Tsarnaev family members are expected to testify in an effort to give a more sympathetic portrait of the young man.
