Jury convicts New York bike path attacker

STORY: A U.S. jury convicted the man who used a truck to plow down and kill eight people on a New York City bike path in 2017.

Sayfullo Saipov was found guilty on all 28 counts he faced - including murder, attempted murder to gain entrance into ISIS, and providing material support to a terrorist organization.

Saipov -- an Uzbek national who moved to the U.S. in 2010 -- had pleaded not guilty.

Following Thursday's conviction, the jury will return on February 6th to consider whether the death penalty is appropriate for Saipov.

It is the first federal death penalty trial of U.S. President Joe Biden's administration -- despite a moratorium on federal executions since July 2021, as the Department of Justice reviews the practice.

Saipov could also be sentenced to life in prison without parole.
