Suspect in Kansas City Jewish center killings appears in court
OLATHE Kan. - A white supremacist charged in the killings of three people at two Jewish facilities near Kansas City in April made a brief appearance in court on Thursday, acknowledging charges recently added against him.
Johnson County District Court Judge Thomas Kelly Ryan also set a preliminary hearing for November 12-14 for Frazier Glenn Cross, 73, also known as Glenn Miller, who is charged with capital murder in the Palm Sunday shooting spree that roiled the nation.
Cross faces capital murder charges for the fatal shooting on April 13 of Reat Underwood, 14, and his grandfather William Corporon, 69, as they stood outside a Jewish community center. Cross is also charged with first-degree premeditated murder for the subsequent killing of Terri LaManno, 53, outside the nearby Village Shalom Jewish retirement home.
In connection with those shootings, he was charged on Tuesday with attempted first-degree murder of three men, aggravated assault against a woman, and for discharging a firearm in an occupied building. (Reuters)
