Frazier Glenn Miller Jr. to be sentenced for Jewish site shootings
OLATHE, Kan. (AP) – A Missouri white supremacist who killed three people at two Kansas Jewish sites last year is about to find out if he will be sentenced to death.
Frazier Glenn Miller Jr. was convicted in August of capital murder, attempted murder and other charges. The same jury that convicted him after a week-long trial recommended the death penalty.
Johnson County District Judge Thomas Kelly Ryan will announce his ruling at a sentencing hearing Tuesday.
Miller is an avowed anti-Semite who said his intent was to kill as many Jewish people as he could on April 13, 2014, when he went to Overland Park, Kansas, and opened fire at two Jewish centers.
The 74-year-old Aurora, Missouri, man has chronic emphysema and says he doesn’t think he has much longer to live.
