Judge sets trial for suspect in Charleston church shooting

Circuit Judge J.C. Nicholson set a July 11, 2016, trial date for Dylann Roof, 21, who faces multiple charges, including nine counts of murder and three counts of attempted murder stemming from the June 17 shootings.

Roof sat quietly during the proceedings in a gray-striped prison jump suit in a courtroom crowded with about 100 people.
