Jury selection continues in the trial of a man accused of killing three people in Overland Park, Kansas. The man, an avowed white supremacist, has admitted to trying to kill the people because he thought they were Jewish.

In April of last year, Frazier Glenn Miller allegedly killed three people at a Jewish center in the suburban Kansas City area.

Miller, who is from Missouri, is acting as his own lawyer in court after he fired his appointed attorney. He is 74, afflicted with emphysema, and said after his arrest that he wanted to kill Jews because they were squeezing out the white race.

Miller challenged several of the prospective jurors and questioned their patriotism.

None of the people who were killed were Jewish. Miller could face the death penalty if convicted.
