The counts include hate crimes as well as firearms offenses.

The suspect, Robert Bowers, has requested a jury trial to determine whether he is guilty of the 44-count indictment pressed against him by prosecutors Wednesday.

Bowers was indicted on 44 criminal counts for the shooting and faces the death penalty.

He was flanked by two USA marshals as he entered a federal courtroom Thursday wearing red prison scrubs, a bandage on his left arm and shackles on his hands and feet.

Authorities say Bowers raged against Jews during and after the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in American history.

Bowers remained jailed without bail.
