Dylann Roof, 22, has been sentenced to death for killing nine black churchgoers during a Bible study in Charleston, South Carolina.
The jury’s decision had to be unanimous to sentence Roof to death.
The jury began deliberating Roof’s fate earlier today, after Roof told the jury in a closing statement, “I still feel like I had to do it.”
The verdict comes at the end of the federal death penalty case in which he was convicted of hate crimes resulting in death among other charges. Roof also faces a state trial in which he may again face the death penalty.
