Dylann Roof sentenced to death for killing nine black churchgoers in a racially motivated attack in Charleston in South Carolina in 2015.
The jury has sentenced Dylann Roof to death on each count, after being convicted of the nine murders at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, last year.
He is the first to get death penalty for federal hate crimes.
Roof, who was 18 at the time of the murders, showed no response to the reading of the verdict – local media.
Roof told the jury, “I still feel like I had to do it,” before they deliberated on a sentencing verdict, according to ABC News.
