Jury Selection To Begin In Kansas Jewish Site Shootings

Johnson County, Kansas, Sheriff's Office

Jury selection is set to begin in the trial of an avowed white supremacist who has admitted that he killed three people outside of Jewish sites in suburban Kansas City last year.

Seventy-four-year-old Frazier Glenn Miller Jr., of Aurora, Missouri, is charged with three counts of capital murder in the attacks outside of the Jewish Community Center and Village Shalom Care Center in Overland Park, Kansas.

Miller has admitted that he killed 53-year-old Terri LaManno, 69-year-old William Corporon and Corporon's 14-year-old grandson, Reat Underwood. He said he was targeting Jewish people, although none of the three were Jewish.

Miller could get the death penalty. He is representing himself, although court-appointed lawyers he fired will be on stand-by.

Jury selection starts Monday and is expected to take about a week.
