Sayfullo Saipov, the convicted terrorist who killed eight people by driving a truck along a popular bike path in New York City in 2017, will not receive the death penalty.
A split among jurors prevented a unanimous decision on the sentence, resulting in Saipov being sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
The 35-year-old defendant was convicted in January for terrorism-related charges, including murder and racketeering.
The defense waived the pre-sentence report, and a sentencing date will be set by both sides in the next 90 days.
Saipov will be spending his time at a facility in Florence, Colorado, and will be alone in his cell for at least 22 hours a day.
The jury began deliberating on Thursday, took Friday off, and sent a note to the judge on Wednesday indicating their inability to reach a unanimous decision on the death penalty.
