OLATHE, Kan., Nov. 11 (UPI) -- Convicted killer Frazier Glenn Cross was sentenced to death by lethal injection in the slaying of three people outside Jewish community centers in Kansas.

He was also convicted on three counts of attempted first-degree murder and aggravated assault for pointing a shotgun at a woman.

A known anti-semite, Cross is the founder and former leader of the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and White Patriot Party. He was found guilty of capital murder in August.

At his sentencing hearing, family and friends of the victims spoke to the court about their loved ones.
