A friend of the Charleston gunman who killed nine worshippers at an African-American church has been jailed for lying to police about the tragedy.

Before his sentencing, 22-year-old Joey Meek tearfully told the court he was not sure if he would survive in prison.

“I’m really, really sorry. A lot of beautiful lives were taken,” he told bereaved relatives gathered in court.

His friend, Dylan Roof,f killed nine worshippers during a Bible study in a church in South Carolina.

Meek pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI and failure to report a crime.

“I don’t know if I’ll make it out of prison alive. I’m scared,” he added before the federal judge handed down his sentence of more than two years.
