US white supremacist Frazier Glenn Miller sentenced to death
Nov 11, Washington: US white supremacist Frazier Glenn Miller is sentenced to death for the killing of three people at two Jewish centres.
A judge has sentenced Miller to death for charging one count of capital murder, three counts of attempted murder, along with assault and weapons charges. Miller, 74, targeted the sites in Kansas last year and will be put to death by lethal injection.
He admitted to killing William Corporon, 69, and his grandson Reat Griffin Underwood, 14, outside the Jewish Community Centre in Overland Park, Kansas. Terri LaManno, 53, was killed outside a Jewish retirement centre.
Johnson County District Judge Thomas Kelly Ryan said that his attempt to bring hate to the community and to bring terror has failed.
Miller responded to the sentence, by shouting "heil Hitler" before he was removed from the courtroom. He, also known as Frazier Glenn Cross, represented himself during the trial. He said he was motivated to kill Jews before he died because he believes they have too much power.
Before the shooting, Miller founded several white supremacist groups and later ran twice for elected office on a white power platform, BBC news reported.
