OLATHE, Kan. (AP) — The jury is deliberating the fate of a white supremacist who admitted fatally shooting three people last year at two Kansas City-area Jewish sites. Before jurors got the case, defendant Frazier Miller — who is representing himself — delivered a rambling closing argument in which he described "floating on a cloud" after the killings. The Missouri man said he was motivated by what he called "the genocide against white people by Jews" and urged jurors to "show great courage" by finding him not guilty. If convicted, he could face the death penalty.

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas man who plotted a suicide bomb attack at a Wichita airport has been sentenced to 20 years in prison. Terry Loewen (LOH'-win) apologized today during his sentencing to his family for the pain he had caused them. The Wichita man pleaded guilty in June to attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction. The avionics technician was arrested during an undercover operation in December 2013 when he tried to bring a van filled with inert explosives onto the tarmac at Mid-Continent Airport.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The State Department is expected to release roughly 7,000 pages of former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's emails later today, including about 150 that have been censored because they contain information that has now been deemed classified. Department officials say the redacted information was classified in preparation for the public release of the emails and was not identified as classified when Clinton sent or received them.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Rick Perry's financially-struggling presidential campaign is set to keep going in Iowa with just one paid staffer and some volunteers. The former Texas governor's senior Iowa strategist, Robert Haus, says the Republican campaign will have one paid operative for now. Perry's campaign has struggled with sluggish fundraising. Last week, Perry's state chairman left to work for Donald Trump.

BRENHAM, Texas (AP) — Blue Bell ice cream is back. Blue Bell Creameries resumed selling its products at some locations in Texas and Alabama today, four months after the Texas-based retailer halted sales due to listeria contamination at some plants. The contamination prompted health concerns that drew the attention of federal and state regulators.
