CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) – More potential jurors are reporting to the federal courthouse in Charleston, South Carolina, for initial screening in the trial of Dylann Roof, who faces 33 federal counts in the June 2015 shooting deaths of nine black church members.
Roof is charged with hate crimes and obstruction of religion resulting in death among other counts in the case.
About 320 potential jurors reported Monday and those who weren’t dismissed or had their jury service moved were asked to fill out questionnaires about the case.
By the end of the day, court officials say 300 questionnaires had been completed. Jurors will continue to report this week until 700 questionnaires are filled out.
Those jurors will then be summoned back to court in November for individual questioning before a trial jury is seated.
