( Frazier Glenn Miller, Jr., who on Monday was convicted of capital murder and five additional charges for the August 2014 shootings near the Jewish Community Center and the Village Shalom retirement facility in Overland Park, Kan., is facing a possible death sentence.

Miller, a white supremacist with a history of involvement with the Ku Klux Klan and the White Patriot Party, represented himself during his trial and stated that he "wanted to kill Jews, not people," in reference to the murders of 69-year-old William Corporon, 14-year-old Reat Griffin Underwood, and Terri LaManno. None of the three victims, however, were Jewish.

If the 74-year-old Miller receives the death penalty during his sentencing, it is possible that he will never actually undergo lethal injection because he suffers from emphysema and may not have long to live, the Associated Press reported.
