Holocaust Museum Suspect Too Ill For Court

Prosecutors say a white supremacist accused of fatally shooting a security guard at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum is in no condition to come to court.

Prosecutor Nicole Waid said at a hearing Tuesday that a D.C. Department of Corrections doctor told her that 88-year-old James von Brunn would not be able to come to court this week or next.

Magistrate John Facciola scheduled another hearing on von Brunn's health for July 10.

Von Brunn faces a first-degree murder charge in the death of museum guard Stephen T. Johns. Von Brunn was shot in the face by other guards and remains at Greater Southeast Community Hospital.

Defense attorney A.J. Kramer says von Brunn is able to respond and understand him.
