OLATHE, Kan. -- The jury who convicted him of murder recommended that White Supremacist Frazier Cross be put to death for killing 14-year-old Reat Underwood and his grandfather 69-year-old William Corporon, and 53-year-old Terri Lamanno outside of Village Shalom and the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park.
On Tuesday, Judge Kelly Ryan will decide if he will take the jury's recommendation or sentence Cross to life in prison.
Before getting to the sentencing phase this afternoon, Judge Ryan is addressing several motions filed by Cross, including a motion for a new trial. Cross made several outbursts and criticisms, which has become typical behavior of the defendant who chose to represent himself.
"They were all influenced. They all admitted they'd seen considerable amount of media coverage about my case prior to trial," said Cross. "It should have got change of venue like I requested."
Before the judge makes his decision, family members and victims of Cross's shooting rampage will address the court to tell Judge Ryan what they would like to see happen to Cross.
