Death penalty sought in Jewish center shootings
OLATHE, Kan. (AP) - Defense attorneys for a Missouri man accused of killing three people outside of two Jewish centers in Kansas say prosecutors are planning to seek the death penalty against him.
Kansas Death Penalty Defense Unit attorney said in a motion for a continuance filed Tuesday that Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe recently told him of his decision to seek the death penalty against 73-year-old Frazier Glenn Miller Jr.
The Kansas City Star reported Miller, also known as Frazier Glenn Cross, is believed to be the oldest person ever charged with capital murder in Kansas.
Miller, of Aurora, Missouri, is accused of killing 53-year-old Terri LaManno, 69-year-old William Lewis Corporon and his grandson, 14-year-old Reat Griffin Underwood on April 13.
