Dylann Roof Trial Reaching Conclusion


On Tuesday, a U.S. prosecutor argued that Dylann Roof should be executed for the hate-fueled killings of nine people during a Bible study meeting at a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina in June 2015. According to Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Richardson, Roof fired a gun over 75 times as he walked around the room, executing the churchgoers. Roof, who is representing himself, is expected to address jurors on Tuesday as well before they deliberate whether he should be sentenced to death or given a life sentence. Last month, that exact same jury found him guilty of 33 charges.

  • Charleston Church Shooter To Fire Attorneys Over Race

    Chuck Burton / AP The white supremacist who murdered nine people at a Charleston church is now seeking to fire his attorneys because of their race. A handwritten petition from Dylann Roof was filed Monday seeking to remove and replace the court-appointed lawyers who are working to appeal his conviction of murder and federal hate crimes. During the penalty phase of his trial, Roof took the lead in spite of a court-appointed lawyer, David Bruck, known for his experience in capital cases. Still, just days later in court, Bruck pleaded for the judge to allow him to take over the arguments that Roof should be spared the death penalty.

  • Charleston Church Shooter Expected To Plead Guilty In State Trial

    The legal case against the Charleston church shooter is expected to take a final turn on April 10th. Dylann Roof will likely end South Carolina's court case by pleading guilty to murder. The 23-year-old was convicted in his federal trial late last year for the 2015 shooting. In June, almost two years ago, Roof sat down with a group of parishioners attending a Bible study at the Emanuel AME Church. After 45 minutes, he produced a pistol and opened fire, killing eight parishioners and a pastor, who also served in the state's legislature. A jury convicted Roof last year on 33 federal charges; he was sentenced to death in federal proceedings.
