OLATHE, Kansas (AP) – A November preliminary hearing date has been set for a 73-year-old Missouri man accused of killing three people in a shooting rampage outside Jewish facilities in suburban Kansas City.

Frazier Glenn Cross Jr., of Aurora, Missouri, is charged with capital murder in the April 13 deaths of 69-year-old William Corporon and his 14-year-old grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood, outside the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park, Kansas. He’s also accused of first-degree murder in the shooting of 53-year-old Terri LaManno, of Kansas City, Missouri, outside a Jewish retirement facility. Prosecutors this week also added three counts of attempted murder.

Johnson County Judge Kelly Ryan on Thursday set Cross’s preliminary hearing for Nov. 12-14.

Cross, who appeared in a wheelchair for the brief hearing, is jailed on $10 million bond.
