Dylann Roof, the man who allegedly killed 9 people, all of whom were black, in a Charleston Church last year is facing state and Federal charges after the incident, when that will happen is still a mystery.
Roof’s attorney had asked to postpone the trial more than a year after the incident had occurred. Roof’s trial had already been delayed twice this year due to the Justice Department not yet decided on to seek the Death Penalty.
South Carolina had decided to seek the death penalty due to the 9 counts of murder and three counts of attempted murder.
After the church shooting, authorities said that they found a racist manifesto that Roof posted on his website, filled with racial stereotypes and angry diatribes against black, Jewish and Hispanic people
This was edited right before the shooting with Dylann holding a .45 caliber Glock and a confederate flag.
Dylann’s attorney said he plans to plead guilty to the Federal Hate crimes and charges.
