Hearing set for suspect in Jewish Kansas City sites shootings

OLATHE - A white supremacist who admits killing three people outside two suburban Kansas City Jewish sites is set to appear in court for a hearing on Thursday on whether he's mentally competent to stand trial.


Seventy-three-year-old Frazier Glenn Cross, of Aurora, Missouri, is charged with capital murder in the April 13 shooting deaths of Dr. William Lewis, 69, Corporon, Reat Griffin Underwood, 14, and Terri LaManno, 53.


A judge last month ordered Cross to undergo a mental evaluation after his attorneys expressed concerns about his ability to help with his defense.


Cross told The Associated Press last week that one of his attorneys said he passed the evaluation "with flying colors."
