Miller Gets His Wish: Death Penalty for Racist Murders

Racist and anti-Semite Frazier Glenn Miller couldn’t face the jury but he just got his wish:  He was sentenced to death today for killing three people in April 2014 outside Jewish community and retirement centers in Kansas.

 

 

“The 74-year-old retired Army green beret and self-described anti-Semite turned his back to the jurors as they re-entered the courtroom [and] he did not look at them as the unanimous verdict was announced,” the Kansas City Star reports.

It took the jury only 90 minutes to opt for the death penalty instead of life in prison for Miller, who also is known as Frazier Glenn Cross. 

The jury’s decision on Miller’s fate came one week after the same panel found him guilty of capital murder in the April 13, 2014, deaths of William Corporon, 69, his grandson, Reat Underwood, 14, and Terri LaManno, 53, in Overland Park, Kan.

During closing arguments Tuesday, Miller, who acted as his own attorney, rambled on about his anti-Jewish beliefs and how he acted to save the white race.  

He dared jurors to sentence him to death, calling them “whores of the Jews,” and said he wanted no mercy, the Kansas City newspaper reported.

The wheelchair-bound defendant, suffering from lung disease, finished his presentation with a Nazi salute and a “Heil Hitler.”
