Johnson County, Kansas, District Attorney Steve Howe on Thursday announced he is going to seek the death penalty against 74-year-old white supremacist Frazier Glenn Miller of Aurora, Missouri, charged with killing three people—all of them non-Jews—at two Jewish sites in suburban Kansas City on April 13, AP reported.
The victims are 69-year-old Dr. William Lewis Corporon, his grandson, 14-year-old Reat Griffin Underwood, and 53-year-old Terri LaManno.

According to AP, Miller shouted: “What about my speedy trial?” after the judge on Thursday scheduled a preliminary hearing on his case in March.
According to KMBC-TV, when Miller was wheeled out of the courtroom, he announced he shot his victims “because Jews are committing genocide against white people. I have a duty to do what I did.” He then added: “I don’t fear the death penalty, I’m going to die anyway.”
Last month, a judge ordered a mental evaluation for Miller, based on his attorney’s request.
