(JTA) – The Missouri man charged with murdering three people at two Jewish sites in a suburb of Kansas City a year ago has fired his lawyers and will represent himself at his trial.
Frazier Glenn Miller said last month that he plans to plead guilty in the case but wants to use his sentencing hearing to voice his anti-Semitic beliefs without being impeded, the Associated Press reported. He has fired his lawyers.
Miller is charged with capital murder in the April 13, 2014 shootings, which killed two people at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City in Overland Park, Kansas, and one person outside Village Shalom, a Jewish assisted-living facility a few blocks away. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty in the case.
The victims were William Lewis Corporon, a retired physician, and his 14-year-old grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood, and Terri LaManno, a mother of two. None of the victims was Jewish.
