Man who killed three at Jewish sites 'has only a few years to live'

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 on Friday in the sentencing phase of 74-year-old Frazier Glenn Miller's trial.

The anti-Semite, who is representing himself, called Dr James Lineback to the stand.

The pulmonologist said Miller, who suffers from emphysema, will probably 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 Centre in Overland Park.

He then shot 53-year-old Terri LaManno at the nearby Village Shalom retirement centre.

None of the victims of the shootings in April last year 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 on Tuesday.
