Roof shot participants at a 2015 Bible study session at Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina. A panel of appellate judges had previously upheld his conviction and death sentence.
Dylann Roof was able to buy a gun two months before the Charleston church massacre because of a background check error. A new plan by the FBI aims to fix what critics call the "Charleston Loophole."
After a Snapchat post saying she hoped students participating in a walkout to protest gun violence "get shot," Morgan Roof, 18, was taken into custody on drug and weapons charges.
The Charleston church killer says his two attorneys "are Jewish and Indian respectively. It is therefore quite literally impossible that they and I could have the same interests relating to my case."
Roof shot dead nine people in the basement of a historically black church in 2015. He has already been sentenced to death on federal hate crimes charges.
A 29-year-old man was arrested in Myrtle Beach, S.C., accused of buying a gun and ammunition as part of a plan to carry out a white supremacist attack "in the spirit of Dylann Roof."
The white man who murdered nine black people in a church in Charleston, S.C., is the first person to receive the death penalty in a federal trial that included hate crimes charges.
The 22-year-old said in court documents that the results of a Google search shaped his beliefs on race years before he murdered nine people in a historically black South Carolina church.
Roof, who was convicted of murdering nine people at a South Carolina church, has dismissed his lawyers and is acting as his own counsel. He faces the death penalty or life in prison.
