Jury selection is nearly complete in the capital murder trial of a Missouri white supremacist accused of killing three Christians at two Kansas Jewish sites.

Prosecutors and defendant Frazier Glenn Miller Jr. have spent the week trying to cull 17 jurors from a pool of 200 and are expected to be finished on Friday.

The Aurora, Missouri, man has pleaded not guilty but admits killing three people in April 2014.

Miller could face the death penalty if convicted.

His courtroom behavior during the weeklong jury selection process has been more subdued than at earlier hearings in which he frequently interrupted the judge and made disparaging remarks toward members of the court.

He has been warned that any outbursts in front of jurors could result in his removal from the courtroom.
