Charleston, SC (WLTX) -- A judge has ruled that Dylann Roof is competent to stand trial in his federal death penalty case.
The decision comes after a two day closed hearing that wrapped up earlier this week.
Roof is accused of shooting and killing nine worshippers at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston in 2015.
Judge Richard Gergel signed an order Friday deeming Roof competent to stand trial.
Jury selection is scheduled to start on Monday at 9 a.m.
Judge Gergel has ordered that competency hearing transcripts will remain sealed at this time to protect Roof's right to a fair and impartial jury and a fair trial.
