Dylann Roof Found GUILTY in Charleston Church Massacre

A jury has found Dylann Roof guilty in the racially motivated slayings of nine black church members at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston back in June 2015.

via AP:

The jury of nine white people and three black people deliberated less than two hours before returning a verdict. Roof faced 33 federal charges, including hate crimes and obstruction of the practice of religion.

The same jury will return Jan. 3 to consider if Roof should be sentenced to death for the June 2015 attack at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston.

He is slated to face another death penalty trial in state court early next year.
