KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri man has pleaded guilty to lying while purchasing one of the shotguns that a white supremacist used in a deadly attack at two Jewish sites in Kansas.

Forty-eight-year-old John Mark Reidle of Aurora admitted this month in a plea deal that he falsely claimed that he was buying the gun for himself on a federal form. Four days later, convicted killer Frazier Glenn Miller opened fire with the gun outside the Jewish Community Center and nearby Village Shalom in Overland Park.

The federal plea agreement says Miller claimed the gun was a present and asked Reidle to fill out the form because he didn't have any identification with him.

Reidle faces up to 10 years in prison when he is sentenced. No date has been set for the sentencing.
