Kansas shooting suspect charged with murder



OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Kansas prosecutors filed state-level murder charges today against the white supremacist accused in shootings that left three people dead at two Jewish community sites in suburban Kansas City.
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, Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe said at a news conference.
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 capital murder charge carries the death penalty as possible punishment, Howe said.
Cross is being held on $10 million bond, and is scheduled to appear in court at 1:30 p.m. today in Johnson County District Court.
Cross, a 73-year-old Vietnam War veteran from southwest Missouri, founded the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan in his native North Carolina and later the White Patriot Party.
