German court says Nazi suspect unfit for trial
A German court has ruled a 94-year-old man suspected of having been an SS guard at the Nazis' Auschwitz death camp is not fit for trial.

 

The Ellwangen state court said Friday that Hans Lipschis is suffering from dementia and it would not be possible to try him on the 10,510 counts of accessory to murder he faced.

 

The court already released Lipschis from custody in December and telegraphed how it was leaning, saying then it had "considerable doubt" he was legally fit. (AP)
