Charleston Shooter to Face Death Penalty

Dylann Roof

The state prosecutor in charge of trying Dylann Roof in what authorities have said was the racially motivated killing of nine black people inside of a Charleston church spoke to the families of victims about how Roof should be punished, but said the ultimate decision rested in her hands.

Solicitor Scarlett Wilson said Thursday Roof’s deliberate massacre – autopsies determined each victim was shot multiple times and police said Roof spent nearly an hour at a Wednesday night Bible study before opening fire – required her to seek the most serious punishment the state allows.
