According to state authorities, a Kansas death row prisoner sentenced to death for shooting three people at a Jewish cultural centre in 2014 has died.

Frazier Glenn Cross Jr., 80, died Monday at the El Dorado Correctional facility just east of Wichita, the Kansas Department of Corrections said. His cause of death wasn’t released.

Cross’ execution hadn’t been scheduled pending court appeals.

In 2015, he was convicted for the shooting deaths of Terri LaManno, 53, William Corporon, 69, and Corporon’s grandson, Reat Underwood, 14.

The three were gunned down a day before the Jewish holiday of Passover at the Jewish Community Center in Greater Kansas City and the Village Shalom Retirement Community in Overland Park. Cross was also found guilty of three counts of attempted first-degree murder and aggravated assault for pointing a shotgun at a female.

Cross was a well-known anti-Semite and the organiser and former leader of the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and the White Patriot Party.
