Suspect in Kansas Jewish sites killings gets new lawyer
OLATHE, Kan. (AP) – A white supremacist accused of killing three people outside Jewish sites in Kansas has been assigned a new attorney in his capital murder case.
The Kansas City Star reports veteran death penalty defense lawyer Mark Manna of Topeka has been assigned to represent 74-year-old Frazier Glenn Miller Jr.
Miller’s previous attorney withdrew last week, citing a breakdown in communications with Miller.
Miller, of Aurora, Missouri, is accused of fatally shooting three people on April 13, 2014.
Prosecutors say he killed 69-year-old William Corporon and his 14-year-old grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood, outside the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park, then fatally shot 53-year-old Terri LaManno at the nearby Village Shalom care center.
Miller has said he wanted to kill Jews. None of his victims was Jewish.
