OLATHE, Kansas (AP) —The son of a man convicted of killing three people at Jewish sites in suburban Kansas City says no one else in their family shares his father’s anti-Semitic views.

Frazier Glenn Miller Jr. was convicted Monday of one count of capital murder, three counts of attempted murder, and assault and weapons charges for the April 2014 shootings.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/1Q8KKJS ) Miller’s 39-year-old son, Frazier Glenn Miller III, testified Wednesday during the penalty phase of the trial. He said he doesn’t know where his father learned about “hating Jews and about hating other races.”

The jury is hearing testimony to determine if Miller should be sentenced to death.

Miller III also said outside the courtroom no one in the family knew of his father’s plans to kill.
