The Supreme Court has scheduled arguments in a case asking for Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's death sentence to be reinstated.

Arguments will be heard in the case on October 13, according to the Supreme Court's term calendar.

Tsarnaev was sentenced to death in 2015 after he was convicted of planting pressure-cooker bombs at the 2013 Boston Marathon that killed three people and injured hundreds of others.

The Justice Department asked the Supreme Court to review the case and reinstate the death penalty.
