OVERLAND PARK, KS (KCTV) -

A preliminary hearing date was set Thursday for a white supremacist accused of killing three people in April at two Jewish-related centers in Johnson County.

A Johnson County District Court judge set Frazier Glenn Cross Jr.'s preliminary hearing for Nov. 12, 13 and 14.

Cross, who also goes by Glenn Miller, 73, was charged Tuesday with trying to kill three other people during the shooting spree. The new charges are three counts of attempted murder, one count of aggravated assault and one count of shooting a firearm into a building.

Johnson County prosecutors previously charged him with capital murder and a premeditated first-degree murder charge in the death of three people at two Jewish center shootings. The capital murder charge is eligible for the death penalty in Kansas.

Cross, who lived in Aurora, MO, is accused of going to the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City at 1 p.m. on April 13 and gunning down 14-year-old Reat Underwood and his 69-year-old grandfather, William Lewis Corporon. Reat Underwood was auditioning for a singing competition and his grandfather was taking him to the event.

After spraying bullets at the center, Cross is accused of driving to the nearby Village Shalom where he allegedly shot and killed Terri LaManno, who every Sunday visited her mother at the assisted living center.

During the course of the shootings, Cross allegedly shot at others. In April, Paul Temme described ducking from gunfire as he tried to get key information to police about the shooter. Click here to read that interview.

Jacob Schreiber, JCC president and CEO, thanked police and prosecutors for their efforts.

"I think the man is going to get what he deserves and I think law enforcement has done a good job with apprehending him and putting him to justice," he said.

The JCC says the past month has been a time for healing. For Temme, the healing is easier with thanks to the community.

"It was a difficult time for me to process it. I hope it was as healing for the victims families as it was for me," Temme said.

Cross remains held on $10 million bond.
