Frazier was a religious fanatic who spent days with his Bible and believed the voice of God was telling him to commit homicides. Before killing the two children of Doctor Ohta, Frazier questioned the killing of innocent children and, once again, heard this voice saying to kill everyone and burn the house down. Four days later he was arrested and sentenced on November 29, 1970 by a grand jury to death by gas.
However, In 1972 the death penalty was banned in California so his sentence was commuted to life imprisonment.
On the first day of the trial, he appeared in court with a new look representing the two sides of a hippie. One side had long hair and a long beard and the other side was totally bald with no beard.
This look was heavily criticized by the media. As a result, Frazier abandoned the look and shaved his head totally bald.
In mid-2009, Frazier hanged himself in the state prison in Ione, California.
