Allow editing in Linq to SQL Datagridview

Using L2Q I fill a datagridview with records.  One column has checkboxes that I want the user to check if the record is to be deleted.  However, the dgv does not allow the box to be checked.  The error says it is read only.   What do I need to do to allow editing?
Dim currBDocs = From d In db.Documents Order By d.LastModifiedDate Ascending _
                      Select d.DocID, d.LastModifiedDate, d.DocTitle, d.DeleteFromDB

        dgvBDocs.DataSource = currBDocs
