CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) – A federal jury has convicted Dylann Roof in the racially motivated slayings of nine black church members in South Carolina.
The jury reached its verdict after less than two hours of deliberations. They convicted the 22-year-old white man of hate crimes and other charges.
They will reconvene next month to decide whether he should get the death penalty or be sentenced to life in prison.
Roof just stared ahead as the verdict was read, much as he has throughout the trial.
