Jury Recommends Death Sentence for Jewish Community Center Killer

Frazier Glenn Miller was convicting of killing three people in 2014 in Overland Park, Kansas

A jury has recommended that Frazier Glenn Miller be sentenced to death for killing three people in a 2014 shooting spree at Jewish Centers in Overland Park, Kansas.

After about 90 minutes of deliberation Tuesday, jurors voted unanimously to recommend that Miller, 74, be put to death for his crimes, The Kansas City Star reports. District Judge Kelly Ryan has scheduled a formal sentencing hearing for Nov. 10.

Miller was found guilty last week of capital murder in the April 13, 2014, shooting spree. Miller killed William Lewis Corporon and his grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood, at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City in Overland Park. Miller then killed Terri LaMano at a nearby Jewish retirement home before he was taken into custody. Corporon, Underwood and LaMano were Christians.

Miller represented himself in the trial. Miller argued the shootings were justified because he was trying to stop “the Jewish genocide against the white race,” according to the Star. The jury deliberated for less than two hours before finding him guilty of murder in the April 2014 killings. He reacted with a Nazi salute.

On Thursday, Miller told jurors he believed he would be sentenced to death, according to the Star.

“I’m not going to ask you for mercy, or pity,” he said.
