The account is from the alleged confession of the white supremacist. In it, prosecutors say Furrow told the FBI gruesome details about the postal worker's death.

"He asked if the mail carrier could mail a letter for him. When the mail carrier agreed, Furrow pulled out the Glock and shot the carrier two times."
Furrow, shackled and handcuffed, was led into a courtroom Thursday morning - arraigned on federal charges.
The 37-year-old man is accused of gunning down the postal worker, who is Filipino-American, and opening fire in the Jewish Center Tuesday morning. There, he hit five people, including three small children.

Furrow surrendered to the FBI after taking a taxi to Las Vegas. The cab driver who took him there says he had no idea his passenger was a wanted fugitive.
