OLATHE, Kan.- The white supremacist charged with killing three people at two Jewish facilities near Kansas City on Passover Sunday appeared in a Kansas courtroom on Thursday and was granted a month-long delay in the proceedings against him.

Frazier Glenn Cross Jr., 73, also known as Glenn Miller, was wearing an orange jumpsuit, with hands and feet shackled. Seated in a wheelchair, he spoke quietly with his attorney.



Johnson County District Judge Thomas Kelly Ryan agreed to a request by Cross's attorney to set the next hearing for May 29, when scheduling details for a trial will be discussed. Cross, being held on $10 million bond, has not yet entered a plea.

Authorities have said he could face the death penalty in the April 13 shooting death of 14-year-old Reat Underwood, and his grandfather William Corporon, 69, outside a Jewish community center in the Kansas City suburb of Overland Park, Kansas.

In addition to capital murder charges in those killings, Cross is charged with first-degree premeditated murder in the fatal shooting of Terri LaManno, 53, at a Jewish retirement home shortly after leaving the Jewish Community Center.

A conviction in LaManno's death would bring a sentence of up to life in prison, with parole not considered for 25 years.

Although none of the three victims was Jewish, federal prosecutors have said the killings were a hate crime as Cross appeared to be targeting Jewish people.
