After about two hours of jury deliberation, Frazier Glenn Miller was convicted of capital murder on Monday.

The 74-year-old, who founded the White Patriot Party in North Carolina, was also found guilty of three counts of attempted murder and other assault and weapons charges, the Associated Press reports.

Before filing out of the courtroom, jurors were left with a few notes from Miller, as he reportedly stated “the fat lady just sang” after the verdict was read, and later told jurors “you probably won’t sleep tonight.” Finally, he gave them the Nazi salute before they exited.

According to AP, Miller opened fire in Overland Park, Kansas where he killed three people. He later took responsibility for their deaths, but pleaded not guilty, saying that he had a duty to stop genocide against the white race.

Miller, who represented himself after firing his lawyers, reportedly had a hard time in court as he constantly objected to the legal proceedings and showed an inability to control outbursts in which he criticized the court system with an anti-Semitic comment.

In his closing statement, Miller reportedly asked jurors to “show great courage” and find him not guilty, despite what District Attorney Steve Howe described as a “mountain of evidence” against him.

Jurors must now deliberate sentencing for Miller, who could receive the death penalty.
