OLATHE, Kan. (AP) — An expert says the Missouri man convicted of killing three people at Jewish sites in Kansas will live only a few more years.

Jurors heard testimony Friday in the sentencing phase of 74-year-old Frazier Glenn Miller’s trial.

The 74-year-old anti-Semite, who is representing himself, called Dr. James Lineback to the stand. The pulmonologist says Miller, who suffers from emphysema, likely will live another five to six years.

Miller killed 69-year-old William Corporon and Corporon’s 14-year-old grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood, at the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park, then shot 53-year-old Terri LaManno at the nearby Village Shalom retirement center in April 2014. None of the victims was Jewish.

Miller, who founded a Ku Klux Klan chapter in his native North Carolina, is facing death or life in prison. Jurors will hear closing arguments Tuesday.
