Leo Terrell discusses the Dylann Roof murder trial

It didn't take long for jurors to come up with the verdict in the Dylann Roof trial. It took less than two hours to find him guilty.

Roof murdered nine black worshipers and wounded three others when he opened fire inside a church in Charleston last year. 

Roof faces a possible death sentence when he returns to court next month for the "penalty phase" of the trial.

The judge agreed to let roof represent himself during the penalty portion, but his attorneys will be on standby to assist him.

What's the strategy behind Roof representing himself as prosecutors seek a death sentence?

Leo Terrell, criminal defense attorney and talk radio host was here to weigh in.
