Judge Denies Dylann Roof's Request To Fire Lawyers

posted by Gary Barboza -

An appeals judge in Virginia is denying Dylann Roof's request to fire his lawyers because of their ethnicities.

The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond announced yesterday that the court-appointed counsel for the white supremacist convicted of the 2015 killings of eight black Charleston parishioners are up for the job to represent him.

Roof requested in a letter to the courts that his attorneys be replaced because they are his "political and biological enemies."

 He's represented by a Jewish woman and an Indian man. He's set to be put to death for the massacre at Emanuel AME Church.
