Suspect in Kansas City Shootings Faces Multiple Murder Charges

Posted Wednesday, April 16th 2014 @ 8am

The man accused of killing three people in shootings at Jewish centers in Kansas is facing multiple murder charges.

He faces one count of capital murder and one count of first-degree premeditated murder. 

Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe said the suspect, 73-year-old Frazier Glenn Cross, is being held on a bond of $10 million. 

Howe added that the death penalty could be on the table, but it's too soon to say whether he'll seek that. He also said that further charges could be filed later.

It's believed Cross was motivated by a hatred for Jewish people in the shootings.  

However, none of the people he shot at the Jewish centers in Overland Park was Jewish.  

He was overheard saying "Heil Hitler" while being taken into custody.
