(CNN)-  The Boston area is relieved that a nightmare week of tragedy and grief is finally over.

One of the Boston marathon bombing suspects is in custody and the other is dead.

Police finally caught 19-year-old Dzhokar Tsarnaev Friday night in Watertown, Massachusetts.

He’s hospitalized in serious condition and could face federal terrorism charges as early as Saturday, from his hospital bed.

His uncle Ruslan Tsarni is speaking out again about his nephew’s alleged involvement in Monday’s bombing.

“I’m relieved. I’m relieved that he’s alive, uh, first of all that there’s now a chance to find out who was behind it, who were mentors of all of it and how possibly could he get involved and do this harm to innocent people. And second of all, i stress that it’s a chance for Dzhokar to seek forgiveness from those he put into suffering.”

Three marathon spectators and an MIT police officer were allegedly killed by the Tsaraev brothers as police searched for them this week.

More than 50 people remain hospitalized, including three in critical condition.
