BOSTON, Jan. 30 (UPI) -- Boston bombing survivor Marc Fucarile says it's great that the government is seeking the death penalty for accused bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

After the U.S. Attorney General's office announced it would seek the death penalty if he is found guilty, Fucarile told WCVB in Boston, "I think it's great. I think it's the right thing to do, definitely, to give him the death penalty."

He went on to express his hope that the process may move a little faster. Fucarile added that while the support and generosity of others helps, it is going to be a long time before people can get past what happened.

The decision comes from the Attorney General's office two days after two other Boston bombing survivors attended President Obama's 2014 State of the Union address as guests of the first lady.
