Judge Denies Dylann Roof's Request To Fire Lawyers

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.
