Judge being asked to delay Charleston church shooting trial

A SC judge is being asked to delay the state death-penalty trial of Dylann Roof, who'south charged with nine counts of murder in latest year'south Charleston church shootings.

Defense attorneys declare starting the trial as scheduled on July eleven won't give them sufficient time to mount an adequate defense for Roof, who's charged with shooting the parishioners during a Bible study.

Circuit Judge J. C. Nicholson set the July trial date latest summer, giving both the prosecution and the defense just below a year to prepare. He holds a hearing Wednesday on the request to delay.

A jury pool of six hundred is to report June twenty-eight for initial screening. Questioning of individual potential jurors and seating the jury starts July 11.
