Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was ordered Friday to pay $101 million in restitution to his victims, and the judge denied his motion for a new trial.

Judge George O’Toole, who heard the case in early 2015, ordered the repayment, which is due “forthwith.’’ All fines associated with the case have been waived.

O’Toole also denied Tsarnaev’s motion for a new trial.

Tsarnaev, now 22, was charged with 30 counts related to the bombing of the Boston Marathon, which killed Martin Richard, Lingzi Lu, Krystle Campbell, and Sean Collier, and left more than 260 others injured.

He was convicted of 17 capital charges and was sentenced to death for six of them. He is being held at the federal Supermax prison in Colorado.
