OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) -- An avowed white supremacist has made his first appearance in court on charges he killed three people in a shooting spree at two Jewish community sites in suburban Kansas City.

Frazier Glenn Cross was wearing a dark, quilted, sleeveless vest and crossed his arms as he appeared by video feed Tuesday in Johnson County court. He spoke only when answering routine questions from the judge, and requested a court-appointed lawyer.

He's charged with murder in the shootings of a 14-year-old boy and his grandfather at the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park, Kan., and a woman at a nearby retirement complex.

Cross is being held on $10 million bond and his next court appearance is scheduled for April 24. Federal prosecutors are preparing a hate-crimes case that could result in charges later.
