OLATHE, Kan. (AP) — An expert says the Missouri man convicted of killing three people at Jewish sites in Kansas will live only a few more years. Jurors in Olathe (oh-LAY'-thuh), Kansas, heard testimony Friday in the sentencing phase of 74-year-old Frazier Glenn Miller's trial. A doctor testified that Miller suffers from emphysema. The anti-Semite, who found a Ku Klux Klan chapter in his native North Carolina, is facing death or life in prison.

NEW YORK (AP) — Investors who were hoping that the August jobs report would provide some clues as to whether the Federal Reserve is about to raise interest rates have been disappointed. There were fewer jobs gained than analysts expected but the jobless rate fell to 5.1 percent, the lowest rate in seven years. The mixed report isn't seen as enough to sway policymakers one way or the other. And stocks have finished sharply lower again. The Dow lost 272 points, while the S&P gave up 29 points. The Nasdaq slipped 49 points.
