A death penalty opponent made famous in the 1995 movie “Dead Man Walking” says Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev expressed genuine sorrow for the victims of the attacks.

Sister Helen Prejean testified Monday that she began meeting with Tsarnaev in early March at the request of his defense team.

She says she asked him how he felt about what happened to the victims of the bombing. She says he said, “No one deserves to suffer like they did.”

Tsarnaev’s lawyer asked Prejean what she noticed about his voice when he said the victims didn’t deserve to suffer.

Prejean says his voice had pain in it and she believes he was genuinely sorry for what he did.

Prejean is the last witness for the defense.
