Mass. man said to target non-whites due in court
BROCKTON, Mass. -- A Brockton man accused of rape and double murder in an alleged plot to kill non-whites is scheduled to be arraigned in Plymouth County Superior Court this week.
Keith Luke is slated to appear in court Thursday after a Plymouth County grand jury indicted the 22-year-old man.
According to a police report, Luke told police he was "fighting extinction" of the white race and had stockpiled 200 rounds of ammunition to kill blacks, Hispanics and Jews.
Luke's attorney, Joseph Krowski Jr., declined to comment on the allegations, but has said he planned a vigorous defense.
Luke is charged with raping a woman and killing two other people, all of Cape Verdean descent, in January.
