Frazier Glenn Miller Jr. said his motive for killing three people outside two Jewish centers in a Kansas City suburb last year was simple: Jews have too much power and must be stopped. “I had no criminal intent.OLATHE, Kan. (AP) — The latest on the trial of a white supremacist charged with capital murder for the deaths of three people at two Jewish sites in the Kansas City area (all times local): A Kansas judge has called a 30-minute recess in closing arguments of a white supremacist’s murder trial after the defendant said he had a medical issue and couldn’t continue.

After an almost three-hour lunch break, Miller returned to the stand and informed jurors he needed to inform them extra about why he needed to kill Jews, however the courtroom would not let him. As an alternative, he talked about an emphysema assault he had 10 days earlier than the April 13, 2014, killings and his want to “take out” Jewish individuals earlier than he died. He stated he did not initially know if he would have the braveness to hold out the assaults, however afterward felt an exhilaration that dwarfed even the sensation of leaping out of airplanes when he was within the Military. The 74-year-old Aurora, Missouri, man is charged with killing William Corporon, 69, and Corporon’s 14-year-old grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood, on the Jewish Group Middle in Overland Park, and Terri LaManno, 53, on the close by Village Shalom retirement middle.
