SC to Seek Death Penalty in Charleston Church Massacre

Thursday, 03 September 2015 02:02 PM EDT

South Carolina will seek the death penalty against the man charged in the June massacre of nine people at a Charleston church, court documents showed on Thursday.

Dylann Roof, 21, faces charges of murdering nine members of the Emanuel AME Church during a Bible study session. Roof is white and the nine slain people were black.

Roof faces additional federal hate-crime charges that also raise the possibility of a death sentence.
