That was Frazier Glenn Miller, Jr., also known as Frazier Glenn Cross, who could face the death penalty after being convicted for the shooting deaths of three people in the Kansas City area last year.

In 2014, Miller shot and killed a man and his grandson, who were at the community center attending a singing competition. Soon after Miller drove to an assisted living facility, killing another person. 

The guilty verdict followed an unusual weeklong trial. Miller represented himself in the proceedings and was also the only witness he called to the stand. He admitted to carrying out the shootings, saying he wanted to kill Jews. Though, none of his victims were Jewish.

Miller’s record as a white supremacist goes back to the 1980s, when he was the grand master of a North Carolina Ku Klux Klan group. 

He ran for public office twice, including a 2010 campaign where he ran advertisements on radio stations so hateful they were often preceded by a disclaimer. (Video via KSHB)

Miller said he hoped to be a “martyr” for other white supremacists after his conviction. His sentencing is scheduled for Tuesday.
