Jury Condemns Dylann Roof To Death For S. Carolina Church Massacre
By Harriet McLeod
White supremacist Dylann Roof deserves to die for the hate-fueled killings of nine black churchgoers at a Bible study meeting in a Charleston, South Carolina, a U.S. jury said on Tuesday after deliberating for less than three hours.
The same jury last month found Roof, 22, guilty of 33 federal charges, including hate crimes resulting in death, for the shocking mass shooting at the landmark Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in 2015.
Roof, who represented himself and did not argue against the death penalty, showed no emotion as the verdict was read.
