>> Dylann Roof, a white supremacist who killed nine black parishioners in a Charleston church has been found guilty on all 33 counts of Federal hate crimes. The verdict Thursday raises the possibility of the death penalty. The jury deliberated for just hours, despite the defense team's occasional suggestions that Roof may be mentally unstable.
And yet his attorneys called no witnesses, largely conceding that there was no disputing the facts of the case. In a rare move, Roof says he plans to represent himself during the sentencing phase of the case next month. On June 17th, 2015, Roof entered the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church during Bible study and opened fire.
He was arrested the following day, and later admitted to carrying out the massacre during a chilling two hour taped interview with Federal agents. Ruth is also facing separate murder charges brought by the state of South Carolina, which is set to begin January 17th.
