(AP) -

Jury convicts Dylann Roof in racially motivated slayings of 9 black church members in South Carolina.
The jury of nine white people and three black people deliberated less than two hours before returning a verdict. Roof faces 33 federal charges, including hate crimes and obstruction of the practice of religion.
The same jury will return Jan. 3 to consider if Roof should be sentenced to death for the June 2015 attack at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston.
   He is slated to face another death penalty trial in state court early next year.
