OLATHE, Kan. (AP) – The jury is deliberating the fate of a white supremacist who admitted fatally shooting three people last year at two Kansas City-area Jewish sites.
Before jurors got the case, defendant Frazier Glenn Miller – who is representing himself – delivered a rambling closing argument in which he described “floating on a cloud” after the killings.

The 74-year-old Aurora, Missouri, man said he was motivated by “the genocide against white people by Jews” and urged jurors to “show great courage” by finding him not guilty.
Prosecutors described a “mountain of evidence” against him. If convicted, Miller could face the death penalty.
