A white supremacist has been sentenced to death by lethal injection for killing three people at two Jewish centres.

Frazier Glenn Miller Jr, from Missouri, was removed from the courtroom after shouting "Heil Hitler"  as he was sentenced by Johnson County district Judge Thomas Kelly Ryan in Kansas on Tuesday.

The 74-year-old was convicted of one count of capital murder, three counts of attempted murder, and assault and weapons charges.

Among Miller's victims were William Corporon, 69, and his grandson Reat Griffin Underwood, 14. They were shot at the Jewish Community Centre in Overland Park, Kansas, in April 2014.

He then shot Terri LaManno, 53, at the Village Shalom retirement centre.

Miller, also known as Frazier Glenn Cross, said he shot his victims because he wanted to kill Jewish people before he dies. However, none of his victims were Jewish.

Representing himself in court, he reportedly said he wanted to kill Jewish people because he believed they controlled the government, the media and financial institutions. 

Upon sentencing him, Judge Ryan said: “Your attempt to bring hate to this community, to bring terror to this community, has failed. You have failed, Mr Miller.”

Following the hearing, District Attorney Steve Howe said Miller was “the most disruptive, evil human being I’ve encountered in my career,” CNN reported.

Miller founded the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and the White Patriot Party.
