Frazier Glenn Cross appears in court on murder charges in Olathe, KansasBy Kevin Murphy OLATHE, Kan (Reuters) - A Kansas police officer testified on Monday about finding a young boy and his grandfather shot in the head outside a Jewish community center, the first witness of many planned for a hearing in the case of a white supremacist charged with killing three people in a Kansas City suburb last April. As many as 22 witnesses could be called to testify in the case against Frazier Glenn Cross Jr., 74 as a judge weighs whether or not he should stand trial. Cross was known to law enforcement as a former senior member of the Ku Klux Klan who had repeatedly expressed hatred for Jewish people when he showed up in the Kansas City suburb of Overland Park on April 13 and went on a shooting spree. Cross, also known as Glenn Miller, is charged with capital murder in the killings of Reat Underwood, 14, and his grandfather William Corporon, 69, outside the Jewish center, and first-degree premeditated murder in the killing of Terri LaManno, 53, who was shot to death outside the nearby Village Shalom Jewish retirement home.

By Caurie Putnam WARSAW, N.Y. (Reuters) - Three guards at New York's Attica prison pleaded guilty on Monday to official misconduct, and brutality charges against them in the beating of an inmate were dropped, prosecutors said.

The case marked the first time criminal charges had been brought against state Corrections officers in New York for a non-sexual assault on an inmate, officials said. Jury selection in the trial of Keith Swack, Sean Warner and Matthew Rademacher had been slated to begin Monday morning in state Supreme Court in Warsaw, New York, some 45 miles east of Buffalo and about 14 miles southeast of Attica.

The police department's behavior created a tense racial environment and culture of animosity between black residents and police in Ferguson, the newspaper said, citing several officials who have been briefed on the report's conclusions. The Justice Department launched a pair of investigations into the police department after the shooting. Attorney General Eric Holder said after visiting Ferguson last year that many black residents expressed mistrust and fear of police.
