Jury recommends death in Jewish site shootings

OLATHE, Kan. (AP) – The judge overseeing the trial of a Missouri man convicted of killing three people at Jewish sites in Kansas has set a formal sentencing hearing for November.

Jurors recommended a death sentence Tuesday for 74-year-old Frazier Glenn Miller Jr. The avowed white supremacist, who has repeatedly admitted to the killings, was convicted of capital murder last week.

Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe had urged the jury to recommend a death sentence, saying Miller’s actions “are clearly the type of case the death penalty was made for.”

In a rambling, hour-long closing statement earlier Tuesday, Miller told jurors he didn’t care what sentence they handed down.

The judge will consider the jury’s recommended sentence. The hearing is set for Nov. 10.
