"A federal trial for the man charged in the slayings of nine black church members is unlikely to deliver the death penalty and he should be tried in state court first, where there is a better chance for capital punishment, a prosecutor said. ... 'The federal government's track record suggests an unwillingness to carry out a death sentence,' prosecutor Scarlett Wilson wrote in court documents filed late Tuesday. She renewed her request that judges in the state and federal cases get together and set a trial schedule that lets South Carolina try Roof first." (07/13/16)
