Jury selection was complete by Friday afternoon, and the process which began on Monday put together a jury made up of eight women and nine men, including five alternates.
Opening statements by the prosecution and defense will be presented Monday, and the prosecution is expected to depict Frazier Glenn Miller/Cross as the predator who stalked and killed three people at Jewish sites in Overland Park, Kansas. He charged with first degree murder of his alleged victims as well as attempted murder of others.
To view the amended complaint against him, click Amended complaint Frazier Glenn Cross.
Miller/Cross, 73, of Aurora, Mo., an avowed white supremacist, will present his own defense, and it will be difficult to predict what line he will take.
Since his arrest Miller/Cross has pushed for a speedy trial. Suffering from lung disease and on oxygen, he has expressed fears that he would die before going to trial.
It would not be surprising to see him admit to the crime, but then again, the prosecution is seeking the death penalty.
What Miller/Cross really wants is a public forum, his day in court, and if he stays with in legal boundaries he may get it. Otherwise a team of public defenders are waiting in the wings.
