    Frazier Glenn Miller, Jr. - Kansas Death Row


    Dr. William Lewis Corporon and Reat Griffin Underwood


    Terri LaManno




    Suspect in killings at Overland Park Jewish centers facing state, federal charges

    By TONY RIZZO
    The Kansas City Star

    State and federal officials are conducting a dual investigation into the hate-crime shootings that killed three people Sunday outside the Jewish Community Center and Village Shalom in Overland Park, authorities announced Monday. Frazier Glenn Miller Jr., 73, of Aurora, Mo., could be charged as soon as Tuesday in Johnson County District Court, where he probably will face murder counts.

    Miller will face hate-crime charges in federal court, based on allegations that he was motivated by bias, said Barry Grissom, the U.S. attorney for Kansas.

    “We are in a very good place from an evidence standpoint and will present the case to a grand jury in the not-too-distant future,” Grissom said in a news conference in Overland Park.

    Asked whether others could have been involved in the shootings, FBI Special Agent in Charge Michael Kaste said the investigation is focused on Miller.

    “We will look everywhere the evidence takes us,” said Kaste, who oversees the bureau’s Kansas City office.

    Miller has made statements to investigators, but authorities would not reveal those comments Monday. The southwest Missouri man long has been known for deeply anti-Semitic and racist statements. He was a Ku Klux Klan grand dragon at one time and founded the White Patriot Party in the 1980s.

    Reat Griffin Underwood, 14, and his grandfather, William Lewis Corporon, 69, were killed about 1 p.m. outside the Jewish Community Center, where Reat planned to audition for a singing contest. Reat was a freshman at Blue Valley High School. His grandfather was a physician. Both were Methodists.

    Terri LaManno, 53, of Kansas City, was killed at the Village Shalom assisted living facility in Overland Park. She was a Catholic.

    Also on Monday, two public defenders in Kansas were appointed to represent Miller in any federal hate-crimes prosecution.

    Kansas Federal Public Defender Melody Brannon Evans and her first assistant, Kirk Redmond, will represent Miller should he be charged in a criminal complaint or, later, by grand jury indictment.

    And should federal prosecutors decide to seek the death penalty, Evans and Redmond would continue to represent Miller. Both have worked capital cases and are qualified to do so under federal rules.

    Overland Park police received 28 emergency calls shortly after the shootings Sunday afternoon. Those calls, many of which included a description of the shooter’s car, helped police arrest the suspect quickly, Police Chief John Douglass said Monday.

    Douglass asked anyone with information that could help investigators to call police at 913-895-6910 or the FBI at 816-512-8200.

    Reactions to the shootings

    Statements released or made Monday about the shootings at two Jewish centers in Johnson County:

    From St. Peter’s Catholic Church, the parish of victim Terri LaManno:

    “She was a loving mother and wife, and a gentle and giving woman. She will be greatly missed by our community. St. Peter’s parish family is coming together to support and comfort Terri’s family and all who loved her, during this very difficult time.

    “Our prayers are with the families of the other victims, and all who have been touched by this senseless tragedy. We ask God’s special blessing on our Jewish brothers and sisters as they approach their sacred season of Passover.

    “As we enter our Holy Week, we take courage from the promise of Christ’s resurrection. We pray for peace and all those who suffer from violence. We thank all those who have expressed their support for Terri and her family, and ask for their continued support and prayers.”

    From the Children’s Center for the Visually Impaired, where LaManno worked:

    “The Kansas City community has experienced a great loss. Terri LaManno, occupational therapist at CCVI for eight years, was a victim of the senseless shooting yesterday at Village Shalom. Terri was a gracious, generous, skilled, and deeply caring individual who made a great difference in the lives of so many children and their families with whom she worked at CCVI. She will forever be missed by all of us in the CCVI family.”

    From President Barack Obama, who while speaking at an Easter prayer breakfast at the White House vowed that the government would provide whatever is needed to suport the investigation:

    “As Americans, we not only need to open our hearts to the families of the victims, we’ve got to stand united against this kind of terrible violence, which has no place in our society. We have to keep coming together, across faiths to combat the ignorance and the intolerance, including anti-Semitism that can lead to hate groups and violence because we are all children of God.”

    From U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder:

    “I was horrified to learn of this weekend’s tragic shootings outside Kansas City. These senseless acts of violence are all the more heartbreaking as they were perpetrated on the eve of the solemn occasion of Passover. Justice Department prosecutors will work with their state and local counterparts to provide all available support and to determine whether the federal hate crimes statute is implicated in this case. “No matter what, we will do everything in our power to ensure justice is served in this case on behalf of the victims and their families. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by these heinous acts.”

    From the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum:

    “The … museum extends its condolences to the victims and families of the shootings at the Jewish Community Center and the retirement home in Kansas City.

    “The alleged perpetrator is a white supremacist and former leader of the Ku Klux Klan. In 2009, the Museum was targeted by a racist and Holocaust denier who murdered our friend and colleague Special Officer Stephen Tyrone Johns. These tragic events demonstrate the continuing need to combat hatred and antisemitism in all of their forms.”

    A joint statement from Eva Schulte and the Rev. Emanuel Cleaver III, on behalf of Communities Creating Opportunities:

    “Yesterday three lives were needlessly and horrifically stolen from our community when a man with a gun in his hand and hatred in his heart attacked two Jewish sites in the suburb of Overland Park, Kansas. This shocking act of wickedness painfully demonstrates that an attack on one faith community is an attack on all.

    We grieve with the Jewish community for the targeted violation of their sacred ground.

    We grieve with the Christian community for the three innocent lives that were lost.

    And we grieve for the soul who perpetrated this evil, putting personal hatred above human life.

    On this eve of Passover we are reminded of God's faithfulness to people in the midst of suffering and tragedy.”

    Kansas City shootings: Could victims' religion affect hate crime charges?

    (CNN) -- Investigators say it was a hate crime when a gunman opened fire at two Kansas City-area Jewish centers. But the three people he killed were Christian.

    That shouldn't affect whether authorities file hate crime charges against him, legal experts say.

    That's because federal hate crime statutes criminalize offenses involving "actual or perceived" race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability of any person.

    "To qualify as a hate crime, all that matters is that the crime was motivated, in whole or in part, by the offender's bias," CNN Legal Analyst Sunny Hostin said.

    Convicted of a federal hate crime, he could face life in prison.

    Kansas prosecutor files murder charges against man accused in Jewish community site shootings

    OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Kansas prosecutors have filed state-level murder charges against the white supremacist accused in a shooting spree that left three people dead at two Jewish community sites in suburban Kansas City.

    Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe said Tuesday that Frazier Glenn Cross has been charged with one count of capital murder for the deaths of 14-year-old boy and his grandfather outside the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City.

    Howe says Cross also faces one count of first-degree, premeditated murder for the death of a woman who was gunned down while visiting her mother at a nearby retirement complex.

    The 73-year-old Cross is from southwest Missouri, and his racist activities have long drawn the attention of hate-group monitors.

    Federal prosecutors say they're pursuing their own hate-crimes case against Cross.

    Records Suggest that F. Glenn Miller Jr. was once in Witness Protection Program

    The federal government appears to have shielded murder suspect F. Glenn Miller Jr. in the early 1990s as part of its witness protection program, potentially providing money for his family — and causing lingering confusion over his name.

    Federal authorities on Tuesday would not confirm his participation in the program, as is their policy.

    But records strongly suggest he has spent at least some time under the government’s protective umbrella.

    In 1987, Miller reached a plea bargain with federal prosecutors on weapons charges. In exchange for a reduced sentence, he agreed to testify against associates in paramilitary and white supremacist movements.

    But Miller’s plea bargain likely included federal witness protection services as well. The 1987 sentencing memorandum recommended witness protection for Miller, according to Chris Shields, a domestic terrorism researcher.

    Miller’s 1999 autobiography, “A White Man Speaks Out,” provides his account.

    “I was to plead guilty to one count of felony possession of a hand grenade and answer all questions posed to me by the authorities,” Miller wrote. “In return, they would recommend a 5-year prison sentence, immunity from any further prosecution by either state or federal authorities, and entrance into the Federal Witness Protection Program which included the financial support of my family while I served my sentence.”

    Federal authorities will not say whether Miller actually joined the program. But records show Frazier Glenn Cross Jr. received a Social Security number in 1990. That was the year Miller was released from prison — and 35 years after Frazier Glenn Miller Jr. obtained his Social Security number.

    Public records connect both names and Social Security numbers to Miller’s address in Aurora, Mo.

    A name change and new Social Security record are consistent with participation in the witness protection program, said Gerald Shur, who designed the federal program and supervised it until his retirement.

    “It’s a court-ordered name change at the request of the government,” he said. “If you didn’t change their names, they could be more easily located.”

    Shur also has said people entering the program commonly keep their first names.

    Additionally, an acting U.S. attorney told The Associated Press in 1988 that Miller had been approved for the federal government’s witness protection program. Name-change court records for federally protected witnesses are sealed.

    In his autobiography, Miller said he served his time in the federal prison at Otisville, N.Y., a medium-security facility. Shur said Otisville is one of a handful of prisons with special facilities for inmates in the witness protection program, further suggesting Miller’s participation.

    Relocations are also part of witness protection. After his release, Miller moved to Iowa, not Missouri or North Carolina where he had engaged in his anti-government activities.

    There is little doubt that Miller was in danger when he was released from custody in 1990. His decision to testify against other members of the movement had infuriated other supremacists and members of the paramilitary.

    He testified in a 1988 sedition trial in Fort Smith, Ark., where 14 white supremacists were accused of conspiring to kill a federal judge and FBI agent, and plotting to overthrow the federal government.

    All were acquitted.

    But word of Miller’s testimony roared through the ultraconservative underground, leading some members to call Miller a traitor “who deserves the time honored penalty for treason,” as one website declared.

    The FBI provided bodyguards at another Miller court appearance, The Daily Beast reported Tuesday.

    Taking part in the protection program would afford Miller at least some defense against retaliation.

    In his book, Miller said he trained as a truck driver after his release. He made no other mention of federal financial support for him or his family, although some limited compensation is common, Shur said.

    In any event, Miller slowly worked his way back into the supremacist movement. At some point he began using the Miller name publicly, in his political campaigns, newsletters and Internet posts.

    That’s also common, Shur said. Many people who enter the witness protection program leave it voluntarily.

    “If he went back to using his old name, he’s out of the program immediately,” he said. “He would not have the physical protection, and he would not have any assistance in his life.”

    But Miller apparently retained the Cross name as well. He is charged under that name.

    Critics said Tuesday the government should not have plea-bargained with Miller in 1987.

    “That man shouldn’t have been running around free,” said Leonard Zeskind, president of the Institute for Research and Education on Human Rights. “He should’ve died in prison.”

    Former federal prosecutor Patrick McInerney discounted speculation that a longer prison term might have prevented Sunday’s tragedy.

    “For someone to predict that 30 years after he testified for the government he would do something like this is a little bit of a stretch,” McInerney said.

    Miller’s road to federal prison and witness protection was long.

    In his book, Miller claimed he received $200,000 from Robert Mathews, the leader of The Order, a violent white supremacist group, in August 1984. Mathews’ goal was to lead a white underground army to establish a separate Aryan Republic in the Pacific Northwest.

    The group funded its activities by robbing banks and armored cars, and members were involved in the murders of Denver radio talk show host Alan Berg in June 1984 and a Missouri state trooper in April 1985.

    Miller said he asked whether the money was stolen and that Mathews replied, “Yes, it is, but it was stolen from ZOG’s banks.” ZOG is a white supremacist acronym for Zionist Occupation Government.

    Miller said that although he’d committed numerous misdemeanors in his life, accepting the money marked his first foray into breaking the law in his capacity as leader of a “white racist organization,” in his own words.

    “I decided to accept the money, knowing full well I’d be committing a felony and subjecting myself to possible imprisonment,” he wrote. “But since I was convinced the federal government was either going to throw me in prison on trumped up charges or kill me anyway, then accepting the stolen money didn’t seem unreasonable at the time.”

    Getting the money, Miller said, “was like a dream come true.”

    But within a few months of Miller’s accepting the final installment, Mathews was killed in a fire after a machine-gun battle with federal agents.

    In 1986, Miller was found guilty of a criminal contempt-of-court charge after violating the terms of an agreement that settled a lawsuit filed against him and his group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. He was sentenced to a year in prison, with six months of the term suspended, and ordered to have no contact with white supremacists.

    On April 30, 1987, authorities raided a mobile home he and others had rented in Ozark, Mo.

    “Inside the mobile home and in one of our vans parked outside, the feds found C-4 plastic explosives, dynamite, pipe bombs, hand grenades, fully automatic M-16, AR-15 machine guns, sawed off shotguns, pistols, cross-bows, and around a half-ton of ammunition, to list some of it,” he wrote.

    That kind of ammunition might have led to a lengthy prison term for Miller. But legal experts say prosecutors have good reasons to make deals.

    For one, penetrating a hate group can be particularly difficult for authorities, said Kansas City criminal defense lawyer and former prosecutor John Osgood.

    Prosecutors typically look at the least culpable defendant with the greatest access to the conspiracy as a good candidate for a deal. Potential witnesses may disclose what they know to prosecutors and investigators in what’s known as a “proffer” session — with the understanding that if prosecutors decide to pass on a deal, the information cannot be used against the witness.

    Former U.S. Attorney for Western Missouri Steve Hill described the calculation: “What does he know? What do I have to give up to get it? And how bad a guy is this?”

    Stand in purchase of guns in Johnson County shootings is a puzzle

    As a felon, F. Glenn Miller Jr. had no legal right to a gun.

    What’s more, a gun dealer would face prison time for selling him a weapon.

    Even a friend who gave or sold him guns would risk federal prison time for arming someone they knew or suspected was a felon.

    Yet the proud racist and anti-Semite stands accused of firing both a shotgun and a handgun in the murder of three people at Jewish facilities in Overland Park last weekend.

    So who put his finger on a trigger?

    Investigators tracing the source of the guns allegedly used by the felon think he was aided by a straw buyer who could clear background checks likely to foil Miller, said a law enforcement official familiar with the case.

    The law enforcement source, who insisted upon anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter, said local police and agents from the FBI and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms and Explosives are trying to locate the middleman.

    Such a gun-buying go-between represents a vexing problem for keeping firearms out of the hands of people like Miller who lost their Second Amendment rights when they became felons.

    Gun rights advocates blame lax enforcement, not firearms law, for the problem. After all, investigators are pursuing a lead on what would already be a federal felony.

    “Most criminals obtain guns from theft, the black market, or ‘straw purchasers,’ ” says the National Rifle Association.

    Promoters of stricter gun control see straw buys as symptomatic of regulations that fail to keep guns away from criminals. Under existing federal law, they say, prosecutors find it difficult to prove that a buyer necessarily knew a weapon was headed to a felon.

    “It’s extremely hard to prove they lied about their intent when they bought the gun,” said Kristen Rand, a lobbyist for the Violence Policy Center, which supports stricter gun sale rules.

    The person who bought the guns intended for Miller purchased them from a licensed merchant, the law enforcement official said. The source declined to say whether authorities have identified the merchant or determined when the firearms were bought.

    A straw buyer breaks the law by lying on the ATF’s Form 4473 that asks about the identity of the true purchaser. (“Are you the actual transferee/buyer of the firearm(s) listed on this form?”) False statements on the form carry a fine of up to $250,000 and a prison term up to 10 years.

    If the licensed gun dealer knew a straw purchaser lied on the federal form, that seller would also face prosecution under the same law.

    “If someone bought guns for (Miller), there’s no question. It’s open and shut,” said Kevin Jamison, a Gladstone defense attorney and longtime member of the Western Missouri Shooters Alliance. “The only question is whether (a straw buyer) had reason to believe he has a criminal record.”

    Yet gun control advocates say it can be hard to prove a buyer’s intent to hand over the gun to a felon — or the rest of the class of people prohibited from possessing a gun.

    “You don’t want to make a prosecutor prove someone’s state of mind,” said Ladd Everitt, a spokesman for the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence. “That’s almost impossible.”

    A handful of states have additional laws aimed at cracking down on straw gun purchases, including requiring background checks on sales between ordinary gun owners. Missouri and Kansas are not among them.

    Federal legislation that would seek to crack down on straw gun buys — mostly through stiffer penalties — has repeatedly stalled on Capitol Hill in recent years.

    Miller, long active in white supremacist activities, now faces capital murder and first-degree murder charges in the killings of William Lewis Corporon, Reat Underwood and Terri LaManno. The shootings, which drew national attention, happened Sunday near Jewish facilities in Overland Park on the eve of the start of Passover.

    Miller, according to his autobiography, agreed to a plea bargain in 1987 that sentenced him to prison for five years on a conviction of felony possession of a hand grenade.

    That conviction came after he and other members of the White Patriots Party were arrested for amassing a weapons cache near Springfield. Miller agreed to testify against other members of the group, a move that for years alienated him to much of the racist paramilitary underground.

    After his release from prison, he was known as Frazier Glenn Cross Jr., perhaps evidence that he was placed in a federal witness protection program. Federal authorities do not confirm when someone has been given such protection. He was charged under the name Cross in Sunday’s killings.

    The U.S. Justice Department estimated in 1997 that 14 percent of state prison inmates who had used or possessed a firearm during their crimes bought or traded the weapons from a retail store, pawnshop, flea market or gun show. Nearly 40 percent got their weapons from family or friends. About 30 percent bought a weapon on the black market. Another 10 percent stole the gun.

    Since the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act took effect in 1994, background checks have been required on all gun purchases from licensed dealers.

    Through 2010, according to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics, that meant more than 118 million checks for firearms transfers or permits. Of those, about 2 percent were denied. Among the agencies that reported the reasons for denial, the bureau says, felony convictions were most common — cited in slightly less than a third of such rejections.

    An ATF study in the late 1990s concluded that straw buys were involved in just under half of illegal gun trafficking.

    The ATF partners with the National Shooting Sports Foundation in a “Don’t Lie for the Other Guy” program. It tries to encourage gun dealers to better identify straw purchasers and to educate the public about the consequences of acting as straw buyers.

    “Buy a gun for someone who can’t,” its posters say, “buy yourself 10 years in jail.”

    Last summer, the Kansas Supreme Court ruled that gun dealers must use the highest degree of care in preventing the sale of guns to a felon.

    That ruling stemmed from a lawsuit by a woman whose son was murdered in 2003 by her estranged husband Russell Graham. She sued the pawn shop where the murder weapon was obtained in a straw purchase the day of the murder-suicide. The man’s grandmother bought the gun after he told the dealer he was a felon and was consequently ineligible to buy the weapon himself.

    A lower court is now judging the facts in the case.

    Missouri Mayor Resigns After Voicing Support for Kansas Killer

    The mayor of the hometown of Kansas City killer Frazier Glenn Miller resigned Monday, after voicing support for the anti-Semitic gunman and former KKK leader's views.

    Dan Clevenger's resignation as mayor of Missouri, which was handed in late Monday night, took effect at 8 a.m. Tuesday morning. He was forced to resign over comments in which he said that he "kind of agreed with him [Miller] on some things, but I don't like to express that too much."

    At least some of those points of agreement are apparent in a letter Clevenger wrote to the Aurora Advertiser several years ago, in which he introduced himself as "A friend of Fraziel Miller helping to spread his warnings."

    "The Jew-run medical industry has succeeded in destroying the United State's workforce," he wrote, and went on to attack "the Jew-run government backed banking industry" which he said "turned the United States into the world's largest debtor nation," according to KSPR News.

    The town's aldermen had voted 4-1 to start impeachment proceedings, and residents attending a special meeting demanded his resignation.

    Frazier Glenn Miller, also known as Frazier Glenn Cross, is facing the death penalty over a shooting-spree at two Kansas City Jewish institutions which left three people dead.

    Racist Shooter Miller Caught with a Black Male Prostitute

    In 1986, Frazier Glenn Miller, the white supremacist responsible for the recent shootings at the Jewish community centers, was caught in the act with a black male transvestite prostitute in the backseat of his car.

    Miller defended himself
    to the Southern Poverty Law Center in a 2013 phone interview. He alleged that he intended to beat-up the prostitute and that he had a history of going around picking up ni**ers and beating the hell out of em, particularly ni**er f**gots.

    However, J. Douglas McCullough, previous federal prosecutor, who discovered the incident while preparing for Millers 1987 trial, paints a very different picture of the incident. In an interview this week, McCullough was asked about the details of Millers arrest and the police report, in which he responded, I would rather not go into the details. Theyre rather salacious. I think the facts speak for themselves and people can draw their own conclusions about how incongruous that is.

    This is the same man who was described as being a pioneer in the modern hate world and among the most-over-the-top, violent white supremacists of the 1980s by Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University.

    Miller seems to have a habit of his statements and actions conflicting.

    In Millers 1987 Declaration of War he penned, I realize fully that I will be caught quickly,but I will die with contempt on my lips and with sword in my hand. My fate will either be assassination or the death penalty.

    However, the chain of events that occurred on April 30, 1987 were actually quite different. After being surrounded by the FBI, Miller and his three comrades exited their trailer full of ammunition and surrendered.

    During his interrogation, Miller claimed it was all a bluff that got out of hand- he was found with a Declaration of War, hand grenades, C4 plastic explosives, dynamite, pipe bombs, fully-automatic M-16, AR-15 machine guns, sawed off shotguns, pistols, cross-bows, and around a half-ton of ammunition. He quickly made a deal with the very government he claimed we needed to [R]ise up and throw off the chains which bind us to the satanic, Jewish controlled and ruled federal government. Let the battle axes swing smoothly and the bullets wiss [sic] true.

    It appears the possibility of a 20-year sentence made Miller reevaluate his loyalty to the white supremacist movement. He testified against his brothers in exchange for a five year prison sentence of which he served only about three years.

    After a glance at Millers rap sheet, it is evident that he is dangerous and a morally corrupt and disturbed person. It is unfortunate that it took a tragedy for the police to notice.

    Investigators want to question accused Kansas killer about 1987 triple homicide

    SHELBY, NC (WBTV) - Investigators in Cleveland County say they want to question a white supremacist charged with killing three people near Kansas City earlier this month.

    They believe he may be connected to a triple homicide where three gay men were killed inside an adult bookstore in 1987.

    WBTV spoke with Sheriff Alan Norman on Thursday who says cold case officers may go to Kansas soon to interview Frazier Glenn Cross, also known as Glenn Frazier Miller.

    Sheriff Norman says he's still working out the details on the Kansas trip.

    Miller was a witness for the prosecution in a 1989 trial for a man charged in the shooting deaths of three people at the Shelby adult bookstore.

    One of those men was Travis Melton, a 19-year-old who worked at the bookstore. WBTV spoke with his sister on Thursday.

    "He was just, always joyful, you never did see him get mad or anything," Dianna Melton said. "I have never seen my daddy cry till that day and he just looked at me and said 'Bud's gone'."

    Testimony linked Miller to the 1987 homicides, but he was never charged.

    "Maybe we'll find the real truth, what happened that night," she said.

    Melton says she has struggled for decades with the loss of her brother. That pain resurfaced on April 13 when she saw a face on the news that she recognized from 1987.

    "His name after 30 years. Here he is again, and he's killed three more people," Melton told WBTV. "You could look at his face and it was just like no soul. It was just black. No expression, no nothing."

    The defendant initially accused in the 1987 slayings was acquitted of charges. He was a member of the same group as Miller.

    Miller was the Grand Dragon of the Carolina Knights from 1983 until 1987.

    WBTV spoke with Imperial Klaliff Robert Jones of the Loyal White Knights of the KKK.

    He says Miller has not been a member of the Klan since 1990, when "the government forced him to stop."

    Jones says he has been in constant contact with Miller since Miller left the Carolina Knights of the KKK in 1987.

    According to Jones, he last spoke with Miller in February of this year and said Miller seemed like he was doing well.

    When asked about the killings in Kansas, Jones said he never thought Miller was capable of "doing something like this."

    "We don't condone what he did," Jones told WBTV. "That's not what we're about."

    Jones says Miller has been associated with the National Vanguard Network for several years.

    F. Glenn Miller may be Kansas’ oldest capital murder defendant

    F. Glenn Miller is not the oldest man ever charged with murder in Kansas. An 80-year-old Kansas City, Kan., man holds that distinction.

    But Miller, the 73-year-old accused of killing three people outside of Jewish facilities in Overland Park, is believed to be the oldest person to ever be charged in Kansas with capital murder and to face a possible death sentence.

    Indeed, Miller is one of only a handful of people over the age of 70 across the country to face a potential death sentence in the modern era of capital punishment.

    “He is in very rare company,” said Richard Dieter, executive director of the Death Penalty Information Center in Washington, D.C. “We rarely see someone of that age committing such a crime.”

    Even though he could face a death sentence, the odds are long that if convicted he would ever be executed because of his age and the length of time it typically takes for death penalty cases to wend their way through the appeals process, Dieter said.

    And it probably will be months before Johnson County prosecutors decide whether they will pursue a death sentence for Miller, also known as Frazier Glenn Cross Jr.

    Prosecutors in Johnson, Sedgwick, Shawnee and Wyandotte counties — the four largest in Kansas and the ones responsible for the majority of the state’s capital cases since the death penalty was reinstituted in 1994 — said they knew of no one else as old as Miller being charged with capital murder.

    And Ron Evans, who heads the Kansas Death Penalty Defense Unit and is now representing Miller, said he knows of no older capital murder defendant.

    The oldest current Kansas inmate serving a death sentence is 70-year-old John E. Robinson Sr., who was 59 when he was sentenced to death in 2003 for the killings of women found in barrels on farm property he owned.

    The eight other men serving death sentences in Kansas range in age from 31 to 58, Kansas Department of Corrections records show.

    There have been 13 other men who went to trial on capital murder charges but were sentenced to life in prison, according to statistics kept by the Kansas Coalition Against the Death Penalty. The oldest of them is 56.

    Mary Sloan, executive director of the Kansas coalition, said she knew of no one older than Miller at the time they were charged with capital murder.

    In Missouri, the oldest man sentenced to death was 76-year-old Ray Copeland, who along with his wife, Faye Copeland, was convicted in the deaths of five men who worked on their farm in northwest Missouri. He was 78 when he died in prison of natural causes.

    While Miller faces a potential death sentence for the April 13 shooting spree, Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe said a decision on whether a death sentence will be sought has not been made.

    Under Kansas law, a capital murder charge carries an option of life in prison with no parole or death by lethal injection.

    Prosecutors do not have to file notice that they will seek a death sentence until after an arraignment. That probably will be many months away after a preliminary hearing.

    Howe said he would not rush into a decision and would consult with the families of the victims before a decision is made.

    But even if prosecutors seek a death sentence, and Miller is convicted, the appeals process would take a number of years.

    The average time spent on death row between sentencing and execution nationally is 15 years, Dieter said. In the 20 years since Kansas reinstated the death penalty, none of those sentenced to death has come close to being executed.

    The few men in the United States who have been executed after turning 70 were significantly younger when they were sentenced.

    A 71-year-old man put to death last year in Arizona spent 34 years on death row, according to data from the Death Penalty Information Center.

    Dieter said the oldest man known to be executed in recent times was John Nixon, who was 77 when he was executed in Mississippi in 2005.

    In Kansas, the oldest known inmate to be executed was 60-year-old George Miller in 1950.

    Under Kansas law, the killing of more than one person during the same crime is one of the limited circumstances when capital murder can be alleged.

    Prosecutors in Franklin County on Tuesday cited the death of more than one person when they filed notice that they intend to seek a death sentence for a 28-year-old man charged in the deaths of four people near Ottawa last year.

    In Glenn Miller’s case, he is charged with capital murder for killing William Lewis Corporon, 69, and his 14-year-old grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood, outside of the Jewish Community Center. He is charged with a separate count of first-degree murder for killing Terri LaManno, 53, a few minutes later outside the Village Shalom care facility.

    Because Glenn Miller’s case is pending, Howe said he can’t comment on evidence or facts or how they might affect his decision to seek the death penalty.

    Dieter said that seeking a death sentence for someone of Miller’s age may be more for its “symbolic value” than a practical reality.

    And he noted a recently published study by the Kansas Judicial Council that found the costs of defending a death penalty case are four times higher than murder cases where the death penalty is not sought.

    “An expensive symbol,” he said.
