Kansas City shooter found guilty of capital murder


(JTA) — The white supremacist who killed three people outside two Jewish facilities in a Kansas City suburb was found guilty of capital murder.

The jury in Johnson County, Kansas, took less than two hours to reach its verdict on Monday in the trial of Frazier Glenn Miller, also known as Frazier Glenn Cross, the Kansas City Star reported.

“I believe the fat lady just sang,” Miller, 74, said when the verdict was delivered.

The trial now enters its death penalty phase.

Miller was convicted of three counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Reat Underwood, 14, and his grandfather, William Corporon, 69, outside the Jewish Community Center of Kansas City in Overland Park, as well as Terri LaManno, 53, outside the Village Shalom assisted-living facility in April 2014. None of the victims were Jewish, but Miller assumed they were Jewish when he shot them.

Miller, leading his own defense, claimed during the trial last week that the Jews have committed genocide against white people, and that they control both the media and Wall Street.

“I had no criminal intent,” he said. “I had a patriotic intent to stop genocide against my people.”

“I hate Jews. They are the ones who destroy us.”

The Star reported that Miller was also found guilty of aggravated assault for pointing a shotgun at a woman and asking if she was Jewish, and of firing into the JCC.
