The man who killed eight people and injured dozens more with a rented truck on a popular New York City bike path in 2017 will be formally sentenced to life in prison Wednesday in a Manhattan federal court.

Sayfullo Saipov, a 35-year-old citizen of Uzbekistan and former New Jersey resident, was convicted in January of carrying out what remains the deadliest terror attack in New York since 9/11.

In March, a jury rejected the death penalty for Saipov, leaving him with a mandatory life sentence.
