ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
A memorial service was held for Reat Griffin Underwood, 14, and Dr. William Lewis Corporon, 69, at The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Kansas City.
Frazier Glenn Cross, 73, is accused of killing Underwood and his grandfather, both shot in the head in the parking lot outside the center where Underwood was about to audition for an annual singing competition.
During the memorial service, Mindy Corporon shared fond memories she had of her son; "Our beloved Boy Scout - many times you told me I loved Scouts more than you. Maybe I did. What I loved is all the time I got to spend with you camping, eating and sleeping under the stars. I cherished that time and we all cherish you."
Cross, also known as avowed white supremacist Glenn Miller, is being held on $10 million bond on a charge of capital murder and premeditated first-degree murder for the killings on the eve of the Jewish Passover holiday.
Federal prosecutors have said they also plan to file federal hate crime charges against Cross, known by law enforcement as a senior member of the white supremacy movement and someone who had made repeated threats against Jewish people.
A third victim, 53-year-old Terri LaManno, an occupational therapist, was shot dead minutes later at a Jewish retirement home about a mile away where she was visiting her mother.
Though officials said Cross appeared to be targeting Jews, Underwood and Corporon were Methodists, and LaManno was Catholic. A funeral service for LaManno was held Thursday.
