Kansas killer death or­der

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

A WHITE su­prem­a­cist who fa­tally shot three peo­ple out­side two Jewish sites in Kansas last year has been sen­tenced to death.

Frazier Glenn Miller, a 74-year-old for­mer Ku Klux Klan leader, went on a shoot­ing ram­page in April 2014 in front of two dif­fer­ent Jewish com­mu­nity build­ings in Over­land Park.

Miller was con­victed this week and sen­tenced to death by lethal in­jec­tion, af­ter telling ju­rors that he did not care what sen­tence he was given.

He has a long history of an­ti­semitic and racist at­tacks, and ran sev­eral white su­prem­a­cist groups in the 1980s. He said he wanted to kill Jews be­cause he be­lieved they had too much power.

Pre­sid­ing over the case, Judge Thomas Kelly Ryan told him: “Your at­tempt to bring hate to this com­mu­nity, to bring terror to this com­mu­nity has failed.”

Miller shouted “Heil Hitler” be­fore be­ing re­moved from the court­room.
