A federal jury decided on Tuesday that white supremacist killer Dylann Roof should be put to death for the murder of nine Black churchgoers in Charleston, South Carolina.

All 12 jurors, 10 women and two men, recommended the death penalty for the 18 counts that carried it as a possible verdict. They decided after 3 hours of deliberation.
Roof’s formal sentencing will be done by Judge Richard Gergel on Wednesday morning.
The jurors did not face Roof when announcing their verdict. Many of them chose to look at the victims’ families in a very somber court room.
Roof did not show any apparent reaction to the verdict. The state of South Carolina uses either the electric chair or lethal injection to carry out death sentences.
