Man accused in Jewish site shootings fires his attorneys
OLATHE (AP) - A Missouri man charged with killing three people at two Jewish sites in suburban Kansas City last year was allowed to fire his attorneys and will defend himself in his death penalty case.
However, Johnson County District Court Judge Kelly Ryan ruled during a motions hearing Thursday that defense attorneys for Frazier Glenn Miller may help him with procedural aspects of the case, such as filing motions.
Miller is charged with capital murder in April 2014 shooting deaths of 69-year-old William Lewis Corporon, 14-year-old Reat Griffin Underwood and 53-year-old Terri LaMano in Overland Park, Kansas.
The Aurora, Missouri, man told The Associated Press last month he plans to plead guilty to capital murder. He has said he wants to use his sentencing hearing to voice his anti-Semitic beliefs without interruption.
