CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Lawyers handling the case of the man accused of killing nine people at a Charleston church will review pre-trial motions.

A deadline for filing the motions in the case against 21-year-old Dylann Roof was set for Friday.

Roof is accused of killing State Sen. and the Rev. Clementa Pinckney and eight others at the Mother Emanuel AME Church after a bible study on June 17.

Two weeks ago, Roof's defense team entered a plea of not guilty to federal hate crime charges at a July 31 arraignment.

Roof faces 33 federal charges and 13 state charges. The state charges include nine counts of murder, three counts of attempted murder and a weapons charge.

The case is not expected to go to trial until July of next year.
