South Carolina church shooter Dylann Roof is now on federal death row in Indiana.
Charleston County jail records showed that Roof left custody there Friday. Federal records showed Saturday that Roof is being held at the U.S. penitentiary in Terre Haute, Ind. The facility houses federal inmates sentenced to death.
On June 17, 2015, Roof killed nine black worshipers during a Bible study at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C. A jury convicted Roof on federal hate crime charges in December and sentenced him to death.
A supply ship named for late astronaut John Glenn arrived at the International Space Station on Saturday.
Astronauts used the station’s big robot arm to grab the capsule 250 miles above Germany.
NASA’s commercial shipper, Orbital ATK, named the spacecraft the S.S. John Glenn in honor of the first American to orbit Earth. Glenn died in December at age 95.
The capsule rocketed from Cape Canaveral, Fla., on Tuesday with nearly 7,700 pounds of food, experiments and other goods. It will remain at the orbiting outpost until July, when it is let go to burn up in the atmosphere.
