Cross appears in court, hearing delayed until May
OLATHE, Kan. (AP) A 73-year-old white supremacist from Missouri accused of fatally shooting three people at Jewish sites in Kansas appeared in court long enough for his attorney to request a scheduling conference be pushed back a month.
Frazier Glenn Cross was wheeled into a Johnson County courtroom Thursday for the brief hearing. Cross, wearing an orange jail jumpsuit with his hands shackled in front of him, looked around the courtroom and spoke with his attorney but did not address the judge.
Cross is charged with killing 69-year-old William Lewis Corporon and his 14-year-old grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood, outside the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City on April 13, then killing 53-year-old Terri LaManno at a nearby Jewish retirement complex.
His next hearing is set for May 29.
