The day after obtaining a guilty verdict on capital murder charges, Johnson County prosecutors presented only brief additional evidence Tuesday on why jurors should sentence F. Glenn Miller Jr. to death.
They called on an Overland Park police detective, who showed jurors fliers distributed last year advertising a high school talent competition at the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park.
Those fliers drew Miller to the center, according to previous testimony, because he thought Jewish teens from across the country would attend. He wanted to kill as many Jews as he could.
The detective’s testimony followed opening statements during which chief deputy district attorney Christopher McMullin called Miller’s killing spree “heinous, cruel and atrocious.”
He described Miller as “a proud and remorseless killer who regrets only that he did not kill more people.”
Pointing to Miller, he asked the jurors to sentence him to death.
