Roof gets death. Unanimous jury sentences Dylann Roof to death after he showed no remorse for mass murder in South Carolina church. A unanimous jury sentenced Dylann Roof to death in the killing of nine black churchgoers as they attended Bible study in Charleston, South Carolina in June 2015.
A jury returned the verdict after less than three hours of deliberation. Reporters in the courtroom described Roof as staring “straight ahead” and “emotionless” as U.S. District Judge Richard Gergel told him his fate.
The jury agreed unanimously on each of the non-statutory aggravating factors, including a lack of remorse, that Roof’s crime was racially motivated and that he intentionally sought to cause harm to others.
Roof reportedly stood to speak, and said “I’d like to request court-appointed new lawyers.” Roof opted to represent himself in the sentencing portion of the trial and relegated his attorney David Bruck to standby counsel.
Gergel thanked the jury for its service, according to reporters from the Post and Courier. “You have been attentive, you have been patient, you have been careful.”
