A federal jury on Thursday found Dylann Roof guilty of all 33 charges in the Mother Emanuel AME Church massacre in Charleston, South Carolina, reports CNN.
Roof confessed to killing nine people last year at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. He could face the death penalty, reports CNN:
Deliberations began Thursday afternoon in the Dylann Roof murder trial after attorneys made closing arguments.
Shortly after deliberations began, the jury asked to again watch the video in which Roof confessed to two FBI agents. Specifically, the jury wanted to see the portion where Roof was unsure of how many people he had killed.
Roof, 22, a self-declared white supremacist, has admitted to last year’s killings at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. Now, after watching an on-camera confession by Roof, jurors could decide not just whether he’s legally guilty, but also whether he should get the death penalty.
