KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — An avowed white supremacist accused of killing three people outside two suburban Kansas City Jewish facilities on the eve of Passover this year says a mental evaluation has determined that he is mentally fit to stand trial.

Aurora, Missouri resident Frazier Glenn Miller is charged with capital murder in the April 13 attacks outside a Jewish community center in Leawood, Kansas, and a nearby Overland Park retirement home.

The 73-year-old told The Associated Press one of his attorneys informed him last week that a court-ordered competency evaluation found that he is mentally sound.

Johnson County, Kansas, District Attorney Steve Howe says a judge has issued a gag order that prevents him or other attorneys from discussing the case.

Multiple phone messages left for Miller’s lawyers were not returned.
