He tried to depict himself as a soldier in the white supremacist army. Miller/Cross tried to introduce a video showing him leading a white supremacist movement in North Carolina. He repeated as he has in open court previously said that he wanted to kill Jews before he died. He said his diagnosis of Emphysema triggered his mission.
His motives, he said, were not criminal, but patriotic; protecting his country from the Jewish threat turned out to be his line of defense. His efforts to indoctrinate the jury were thwarted by Judge Thomas K. Ryan and the prosecution who, refused to allow him to introduce three anti-Semitic items to the jury as evidence.
On his cross examination by the prosecution Miller said he wished he had killed more. He made no effort to deny the shootings and as was expected used his day in court to draw attention to his anti-Semitic views.
He is charged with the murder of three Christians who were near Jewish facilities in Overland Park, Kansas, when they were killed.
He again showed some regret for killing the 14-year-old, Reat Griffin Underwood, but at no time admitted that he had bungled his “:mission” by killing Christians instead of Jews. He said the victims should have known better than to associate with Jews.
The trial will now go to closing statements from the Prosecution and Defense on Monday and the jury will receive its instructions.
Frazier Glenn Miller /Cross is charged with capital murder and if found guilty could receive the death penalty.
