Frazier Glenn Miller, the 72-year-old former KKK leader accused of last month’s Kansas City shootings in which three people were killed at two separate Jewish institutions, appeared in court this week to acknowledge additional charges against him in connection with the shooting, Reuters reports. Frazier Glenn Miller, also known as Frazier Glenn Cross, had already been charged with capital murder in the deaths of Reat Underwood, 14, and his grandfather William Corporon, 69, outside the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park, and first-degree premeditated murder in the death of Terri LaManno, 53, who was shot minutes later outside Village Shalom Jewish retirement home. Now, according to Reuters, Miller faces the additional charges of “attempted first-degree murder of three men, aggravated assault against a woman, and for discharging a firearm in an occupied building.”
He’s being held on $10 million bail, and a preliminary hearing was scheduled for November 12-14.
The new charges suggest that Miller had intended for there to be more victims of his April 13 attack, and add to the strong legal case against him. The initial capital murder charge enables Johnson County, KS prosecutors to seek the death penalty against Miller, and a conviction on the charge alone would entail life without parole.
