CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) — Admitted Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof’s trial will be streamed for overflow crowds at the courthouse.

It comes through funding from the U.S. Justice Department and MUSC.

Charleston County Council’s Finance Committee unanimously agreed to accept the funding at Thursday night’s meeting.

Roof has waived his right to appear at a pretrial conference, according to motions filed for his state trial.
