KANSAS CITY, Mo.--A Kansas capital murder case involving a white supremacist who is dying of emphysema poses some unusual challenges for a district attorney pursuing the death penalty for the first time.

A man who is in jail for allegedly killing three people he believed to be Jewish has said he plans to plead guilty. KMUW's Aileen LeBlanc reports...

A white supremacist accused of killing three people near two Kansas Jewish centers says he's ready to plead guilty to all charges to avoid a lengthy trial.

Frazier Glenn Miller told The Associated Press in a phone call from jail on Monday that he doesn't have long to live and wants to have his day in court.

Senator Jerry Moran wants to know whether Department of Justice protocols have changed since a white supremacist now accused of killing three people in Kansas was given leniency a quarter-century ago.

Moran sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder on Friday urging a review of relevant DOJ policies that led to a five-year sentence for Frazier Glenn Miller in 1987 for possessing stolen military weapons and declaring war on the country.

Evidence recovered from the home of the southwest Missouri man accused of killing three people outside two Kansas Jewish facilities indicates he researched directions to synagogues and kosher places to eat.

69-year-old William Corporon, his 14-year-old grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood, and 53-year-old Terri LaManno were killed in the shootings.
