I'm sure the defense will try to pin everything on his dead brother in order to avoid the death penalty. Maybe the defense will bring up an insanity claim or coerced-by-dead-brother claim. Who knows. But I doubt he will simply plead not guilty.
That video of him setting down his backpack and walking away before it explodes may be what it takes to convince the jury to vote for the death penalty. I could be wrong, but I would think the DA would want to keep that video for trial.
