COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - The 21-year-old man accused of killing nine African-American parishioners in a racially-charged shooting in Charleston last month will be arraigned on federal hate crime charges on Monday.
Dylann Storm Roof was indicted on 33 federal charges on Wednesday, including weapons and hate crime charges. He will be arraigned in front of a Charleston County magistrate judge on July 26 at 9:30 a.m.
Roof will also be represented by a high-profile defense attorney that also represented Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the Boston Marathon bomber, and Susan Smith. David Bruck has been provisionally appointed to defend 21-year-old Dylann Roof on federal charges, court records show.
Roof has already been hit with nine counts of murder in South Carolina for the June 17 killings of state Sen. Clementa Pinckney and eight members of his congregation at the Emanuel AME Church.
Roof remains in custody in Charleston.
