Trial Delayed for Charleston Church Shooter

Dylann Roof

A federal judge on Thursday delayed the trial for a white man accused of shooting nine black people at a Charleston church earlier this year.

Jury selection in the case of Dylann Roof had been set to begin next month. But U.S. District Judge Richard Gergel agreed to push the trial until at least January after both defense attorneys and federal prosecutors said they needed more time to prepare.

Roof, 21, faces dozens of federal charges, including hate crimes, stemming from the June 17 shootings at Emanuel AME Church.
