CHARLESTON, S.C. — Officials with South Carolina’s 9th Judicial Circuit say they expect Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof to plead guilty in his state murder trial next month.

Roof is scheduled to enter a plea April 10 at the Charleston County Courthouse, and according to Scarlett A. Wilson, solicitor for the state’s 9th Circuit, “The plea is negotiated, which means it is ‘carved in stone.’ ”

Roof has already been sentenced to death by a federal jury for killing nine people in the June 2015 massacre at a historically black church in Charleston.

Dylann Roof threatened to kill his capital defense attorney David Bruck 'if he gets out of jail'
By Abigail Darlington | The Post and Courier | April 12, 2017, Updated 11:45PM ET


During the federal trial for the massacre of nine people at Emanuel AME Church, Dylann Roof threatened to kill his attorney David Bruck, according to recently unsealed court documents.

Bruck, a renowned capital defense attorney, was relegated to the role as standby counsel for the penalty phase of the trial with the rest of the defense team after Roof decided to self-represent.

On Dec. 30, before the penalty phase began, Bruck went to the jail where Roof was being held. Bruck had information Roof previously requested, but Roof rejected his help.

Roof said he didn't plan to object to anything the prosecution presented in their case to sentence him to death. He told Bruck he hated him, and that "if he gets out of jail, he plans to come to Mr. Bruck's house and kill him," according to an affidavit filed by the defense team on Jan. 1.

His threat was among 22 facts lawyers included in the filing that details how their relationship with Roof deteriorated leading up to and during the trial.

The defense attorneys' affidavit also discusses Roof's behavior at the defense table during the trial.

He fixated on irrelevant details, the lawyers stated, and at one point Roof said he "hated" attorney Emily Paavola for questioning a witness about clothing in his car, which was shown in a photograph.
